It's really a genius idea if you think about it. What better way to battle those evil and sometimes deadly mosquitos that swarm in Missouri summers than an aerial weapon? Answer - drones and it could happen because it's already being done.

I will confess that I have a good time making fun of Florida. In my defense, any state where a man really through an alligator through a drive-through window to try and rob it deserves to be laughed at. But, in this case, the Sunshine State is doing something that could be done in Missouri. MSN shared a story about how they are effectively battling mosquitos with drones. It's not just being done in Florida either.

These big and bad drones could cover 3 acres at a time with just a 15 pound payload of anti-mosquito stuff. Hello, Missouri summer pests anyone?

This reminds me of when I was a kid when the "fogger" would drive up and down our street in Hannibal during the summer months. Some complained that the stuff they sprayed was potentially harmful to humans, but I actually liked the smell of it (which explains a lot about later decision making in my life).

My point is that for a relatively low cost, Missouri towns could (and maybe should) hire these drone companies to battle the numerous zillions of mosquitos that occupy every single square inch of the air between June and the end of August. It's happening in other states and Missouri needs the help more than they do.
