Daily Mail - Science & tech 

Most people might use sprays or swatters to get rid of pesky mosquitoes from their homes. Now, Florida county is set to battle these troublesome pests with teams of low-flying insect-fighting drones. The state even has plans to create one mammoth craft that weighs the same as a grizzly bear (1,500 pounds/ 680kg). As a result of a new US federal programme, authorities will be able to fly drones at night and directly over people at'low altitude', something that would not have been permitted under current law. Details about when or how the unmanned drone will be combating the country's pest problem have yet to be revealed.
