There are many PestControl devices on the market to help us control insects which lend themselves particularly well the the problems of locusts swarms. Most do not work all the time, however “this concept is sound,” both in actual and in principle. It works with adjusting to a proper frequency on the specific species of insects. The type of sound and insect of course will be matched in our proving of concept and modified to include which devices and frequencies can be used. Due to the slow airspeed, weight and capability of useful load of the UAVs, we will use a high lift fat, high angle of attack wing often used in STOL light aircraft, which is un-edible and undesirable to the chosen insect. Due to the flight speed of the insects and allowing them their physiological need to stop and eat along the way. Paths of flight will need to take into consideration GIS data and recent aerial satellite digital photography to make sure the path of destruction allows for enough food along the way and the least amount of collateral damage to property. This can be done by attempting to achieve maximum migration speed from the locusts. There are many Pest Control Devices, which can have over 33% effectiveness today in the private sector of 5000 square feet. These units are relatively inexpensive and the most common residential consumer units, which provide up to 2500 square feet of pest control are very simple light weight and we can discard the molded plastic Chinese made trim and save even more weight, thus allowing us to use minim-blimp airships for an acoustic platform.
To prove concept, We intend to use these off the shelf devices along with off the shelf model aircraft to guide our insects to prove concept. We will have two storage containers, which will be 6.2 miles apart. The first will have Locusts inside and the second food that the locusts like to eat, to capture the insects for later tests. We will place food along the way, some off to the edges to prove we can make the insects ignore the food supply and press on the intended path of positive sound and not wish to cross the negative sound waves, which they do not like. Think on this.
