Oh sure, we all know this is all they are for.

Hey, it looks like we found something useful to do with drones besides serving lukewarm sushi to unsuspecting customers. City officials in Florida Keys are testing using the unmanned aerial vehicles to track down and take out the flying devils, a.k.a mosquitoes.

In case you’re imagining drones shooting lasers, the flying robots will be equipped with infrared cameras to locate areas where mosquitoes like to socialize, such as shallow-water pools. Once those places are targeted a ground team will swoop in to obliterate the mosquitoes with poison.

If you needed another reason to avoid Florida, there are over 40 types of mosquitoes in the Keys that transmit several terrifying diseases like malaria, dengue fever and dog heartworm. The two-pound drones are capable of flying for up to 90 minutes without being recharged.
