Locusts To Help Make Energy From Bio Waste, part IV


We are in a Plague year 2004-2005 where the locusts are swarming. No one knows how long this will last, but this problem could rage on for several more years. In fact the entire middle east is on watch for the locust plagues.

In this strategic plan to curb the destruction of the locusts, the aircraft and UAV to be used will guide the insects to an area which will act as a virtual freeway where along the way will be buildings which will be turned on along the way by remote from the UAVs which will combine acoustic systems to include creating electro-magnetic interference using phase shift currents on alternating current systems. It is possible to send in an interference to a facility which detracts and repels insects to the facility, thus keeping the swarm flowing in the intended direction. The Germans have several studies on the concept of acoustics in insect control. Several of the white papers we have read include use of advanced ceramic ultrasonic acoustic transducers and related technologies which can be incorporated into the aerial component of this migration

The aircraft and UAVs would also use ceramic piezo sirens and the relative wind from forward momentum we can reduce the power needs, from the aircraft although might be power assisted.

With simple off the shelf whistles and devices drawing little or no battery energy, we can lay down tracks of sound directed to specific points to create sound barriers to control and direct insects in flight.

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.
