Perth wetlands uses drones equipped with mosquito pesticides  

In the urban wetlands of Perth’s inner northeast suburbs, a large swarm of mosquitos have been a nuisance to the community for over 17 years. The local council has recently approved drones equipped with pesticides to fly over these targeted areas to combat the mosquitos taking over the wetlands, making it more pleasant to go for walks, sightseeing and various other outdoor activities within the area.

The council had previously trialed spraying the pesticide by foot but were unsuccessful due to sinking in the mud, making it unsafe for them to undertake this activity themself.

This is one of many examples where drones serve a great purpose to support communities in various ways.
