Other areas use helicopters and trucks to kill mosquitoes. After West Nile started popping up in San Francisco, the city hired cyclists to drop larvicide pellets into spots of standing water. The team of 13 cyclists spend all day riding around the city to spot stagnant pools. Pellets of the larvicide Altosid are deposited, the cyclist punches a button a GPS unit, and he continues on his tour of the city. What a cool job.
