Makes you think about high flying military planes spraying chemicals -- wait, nevermind. They'd never do that. Move along...

Text of the article:

 

HOUSTON, TX — Standing water and abnormally flooded neighborhoods in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey have increased the disease-carrying insect population. The United States Air Force said it will deploy C-130H Hercules tactical cargo aircraft to spray more than 6 million acres with chemicals to help rid unwanted bugs.

The Pentagon last week announced it would send four C-130H aircraft and nearly 70 Reserve Citizen Airmen from the Youngstown (Ohio) Air Reserve Station to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. They were to begin aerial spray applications in coordination with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Centers for Disease Control.

The mission will primarily target mosquitoes which are capable of transmitting diseases such as malaria, West Nile virus, Zika and various types of encephalitis. Increased populations of these pest insects can eventually lead to individual cases or widespread outbreak of these diseases. The pest insects can also hinder recovery workers, resulting in less time in the field.

Sincerely,
