To diminish or kill a killer bee swarm in-flight as it is trying to attack a human you have to be careful not to kill the human. And you must understand how insect swarms fly. And so an online think tank began discussing this topic at length.
How do these swarms stay aloft? And what types of airflows and aerodynamics does the group use?.One think tank member states; "You brought up the notion again about the nature of the swarm as a function of air motion or air flow relative to the center of the swarm.".
Well consider a Helicopter will circular airflows off the rotor blades. Air hits ground and has nowhere to go bunches up and the helicopter takes off as it pushes of the air it bunches up underneath its self.http://www.copters.com/aero/hovering.
Next we need to look at the wing designs of the insects, is there a way to disrupt the airflow over the wings? Take it away or cause the swarm to crash land? Well in that regard then this is of interest as well to the subject of wing design;.http://images.google.com/images?q=insect+w.
n&start=20&sa=N.Next we need to consider the airflows and Insect wing efficiencies;.http://images.google.

au/quantum/stories/s103203.htm.Once we learn all we can about the insects and how they fly and how their swarm operates now we look for vulnerable weaknesses in their system to disrupt them and thus prevent them from killing humans. So, now the think tank can consider this in 2006.."Lance Winslow" - Online Think Tank forum board.
