This could also mean breeding ground for diseases that the mosquitoes carry, like dengue and zika. The NEA and the Town Council have been alerted to the issue. Both have reportedly said they know of the issue, and is currently working to solve the issue.

US Developing Insect Spy Drone

One of the current areas of research reportedly being undertaken in the scientific/military field is the development of micro air vehicles (MAVs), tiny flying objects intended to go places that cannot be (safely) reached by humans or other types of equipment. One of the primary military applications envisioned for MAVs is the gathering of intelligence (through the surreptitious use of cameras, microphones, or other types of sensors); among the more extreme applications posited for such devices is that they may eventually be used as "swarm weapons" which could be launched en masse against enemy forces.
