GHMC to use drones to kill mosquitoes and larvae in Hyderabad lakes
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has geared up to spray anti-larval chemicals in the lakes and to kill mosquitoes and larvae using drones.
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has geared up to spray anti-larval chemicals in the lakes and to kill mosquitoes and larvae using drones. On Friday, the officials sprayed second round of chemicals on Gurunatham lake marking it as formal inauguration in the presence of Mayor Bonthu Ram Mohan.
The GHMC has taken the move after they successfully sprayed the chemicals on Gurunatham lake in Miyapur for the first time using drones in March this year. And the same will be repeated across all the lakes, except which are under beautification work, said D Hari Chandana, Additional Commissioner (Lakes) and Serilingampally Zonal Commissioner.
The drone has carried about eight to nine litres of chemical earlier and now it is modified and can carry 16 to 17 litres of chemical. It has been developed by enthusiasts at T-Hub. The technique has been introduced to reduce manpower.
