Florida plans to use drones for 'mosquito control'

 According to a local report, the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District is planning to begin implementing the "innovative" new initiative soon. The measure is being sold as a means of "killing the persistent pests" more efficiently. And, you know, if authorities happen to catch other activities on camera too, well, whatever.

From Keysnet:

Typically used for law enforcement, the district is floating the idea of using an "unmanned autonomous vehicle" -- a drone -- to help spot shallow-water pools where mosquitoes breed up and down the Keys.

District Director Michael Doyle said he's invited several government agencies to a scheduled test flight for the UAV at its Marathon office on 107th Street at 10 a.m. Aug. 26.
