The drone will now hunt and kill the mosquito
All unreachable areas will be visited by this
It will spreas anti mosquito pesticides also
Will also identify all areas on its own
Kolkata: Kolkata Municipal Corporation has found a new way to stop the
longer be needed to find and eliminate mosquitoes. Kolkata Municipal
Corporation is now going to leave this work to the drone. A special type of drone
is being deployed for this purpose. It has all the features, so that it can detect
mosquitoes in different areas by flying in the sky without any help. Also, it has
been added that once the mosquitoes are detected, they can also spray the
medicine to eliminate them. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation was concerned
about preventing dengue, chikungunya and malaria outbreaks in its area. Despite
trying many ways, the expected success in preventing the mosquito population
from growing was not achieved. For this reason, this decision has been taken by
the Kolkata Municipal Corporation to try new scientific discovery in this work.
This type of drone was already developed by researchers from IIT Mumbai.
That model was then named Marut. Now the drone which is to be used by
Kolkata Municipal Corporation is named Vinash.
According to the information that has come
out about this new type of drone, This drone
can fly to an altitude of more than twenty
storey buildings and find the areas where
mosquitoes thrive. It has GPS system, so that
the control room will always keep track of
which area of KMC is flying now. During its
flight, the drone will also send pictures of buildings and other areas that it sees.
Many areas of Kolkata are deprived of regular checks by the Kolkata Municipal
Corporation due to its dense population and surroundings. Deputy Mayor of
Kolkata Municipal Corporation Mr. Atin Ghosh has given information about this
method. The areas where this drone will identify will be physically examined.
If the drone figures are correct and there is a population of mosquitoes in these
areas, then this drone will also spray the mosquito repellent there. The drone has
a special can fittes in it. This will contain mosquito repellent. People will also be
warned with a loud hooter sound signal before a drone can spray the medicine in
a particular area. By the ringing of this hooter, people will understand that the
spraying of mosquito killing medicine is going to start in their area.
According to Mr. Ghosh, machine arms have also been installed in this drone to collect
samples. If needed, it will come down and collect samples of its work and bring it
along. Those will be examined separately in the laboratory. Apart from soil, this drone
can also bring water samples for testing. By examining them, the presence of
mosquitoes or other bacteria that spread the disease will be detected in the
laboratory. Generally, in the area of Kolkata Municipal Corporation, there are
many such areas among the densely populated areas where the employees of
Kolkata Municipal Corporation are not even able to reach. Now with the help of
drones, all those areas will be identified in order. After identification, if mosquito
population is found there, spraying of mosquito repellent will be done by drone
or staff. This will go a long way in controlling the mosquito population.
A special container will carry anti mosquito drug in it. mosquitoes from the root by
spraying the medicine itself in the mosquito larvae areas.
A fungus can kill 99 percent of mosquitoes
Recent scientific research has found that fungus can kill 99 percent of
mosquitoes present in a particular area. This fungus has been prepared in the
laboratory. Changes have also been made in the genetic structure of fungus for
this. According to World Health Organization data, this fungus is like spider
poison. Virus-carrying mosquitoes that spread malaria can also be killed by its
use. Due to the increasing malaria outbreak across the world. Advanced malaria
treatment is not available to these people. Malaria viruses, on the other hand,
have created resistance to protect themselves from the effects of common
medicines. For this reason, the number of patients is constantly increasing in
areas with mosquitoes.
