Mosquito drone to help battle bugs in Florida
This is taking bug spraying to a whole new level: The State of Florida says it's testing a small drone that can wipe out mosquitoes.
The drone, named Maveric, only weighs two pounds.
It was tested out for a few minutes yesterday over the Florida Keys. Researchers were targeting mosquitoes living in unpopulated areas of the islands as a safety precaution.
A local mosquito control agency asked for the demonstration to show how the drone can acutally locate puddles prime for mosquitoes to lay eggs.
The $63,000 drone is the same used by Navy SEAL teams and law enforcement agencies.
