Can We Use Sound Waves to Make Locusts Crash When Swarming
Is there a way to cause all the locusts in a locust plague or swarm to crash? Can we cause structural failure in their wings using directed sound waves or sound energy? This subject was recently brought up in an online think tank while brain storming ways to stop locusts from devastating the countryside.Can we use sound waves to steer locusts around crops or can we use sound to break their wings while in flight? Perhaps, and in like an old Comet Airliner and down it goes from harmonic imbalance? Indeed, harmonics might interfere with insect flight, as far as structural failure, as in wings breaking, most insects bend a lot as is the case with organic made wings, think of them flying in wind gusts and severe weather, they have evolved and adapted for that of course right? And it would be similar to a polymer material memory wing spar structure in an advanced MAV. But each insect has an efficiency number, like a Reynolds number and if you use the directed sound beam to disrupt the nerve firings, then you screw up the insect like zapping someone with a stun gun and thus, you win that way. Which could be easier.If it could be done there are lots of commercial uses for such a device right? It has applications for Mosquitoes and Patios in the private sector and bugs and flies at picnics too.
But the opposite also has applications. For instance enhancing flight and sound waves to incite a mini-swarm or plague and you could prevent an enemy from launching aircraft, disrupt international terrorists, stop an advancing army coming at your location, diverting birds or even securing borders or important infrastructure facilities? Think of Michael Creighton's "Prey" novel or Alfred Hitchcock's "Birds" movie.Maybe we should fund research, if we increased the abilities of bees for instance and incited them with sound to become more efficient, they would better help us with crop yields and on the flip side we could deter Locust Plagues from attacking and eating our crops. Consider all this in 2006.."Lance Winslow" - Online Think Tank forum board.
