The Air Force's Aerial Spray Unit utilizes C-130 Hecules aircraft to combat mosquitos.
The Department of Defense (DOD) mandates the existence of an Aerial Spray Unit (ASU) and this service is provided by the U.S. Air Force. The DOD initiates most of the unit's spray missions, although local, state and other federal agencies sometimes request these services. The ASU uses C-130s equipt with GPS and a removable Modular Aerial Spray System (MASS). The MASS provides a C-130 with the capability of spray coverage of up to 100,000 acres a day. An except from the Air Force News Bulletin:
A C-130 Hercules from the 910th Airlift Wing's aerial spray unit, Youngstown-Warren Airport Air Reserve Station, flew to Langley Air Force Base, Va., early Oct. 3 to begin combating mosquito infestation caused by Hurricane Floyd. A second specially equipped C-130H aircraft and crew from the Air Force Reserve Command unit will join the first aircraft and crew later in the week to assist in spraying infested areas of North Carolina and Virginia. Equipped with the removable Modular Aerial Spray System, these aircraft can each spray 80,000 to 100,000 acres of land per day. The 910th AW is the only Department of Defense agency capable of performing this mission.

U.S Law Title 50: War and National Defense, Chapter 32: Chemical and Biological Warfare Program, Sec. 1520a: "Restrictions on use of human subjects for testing of chemical or biological agents" allows for use of a biological agent on a civilian population for "any purpose that is directly related to protection against toxic chemicals or biological weapons and agents" as long as a report has been submitted to Congress thirty days previously:
U.S. Code: Title 50, Section 1520a
The President is concerned about protecting U.S Citizens from biological attacks. He addressed this issue in his commencement speech at the U.S. Naval Academy. He has also requested $94,000,000 for civilian antidotes in case of a biological attack. Excepts from the speech and the White House press release:
We will undertake a concerted effort to prevent the spread and use of biological weapons, and to protect our people in the event these terrible weapons are ever unleashed by a rogue state, a terrorist group or an international criminal organization...We must do more to protect our civilian population from biological weapons...Creating stockpiles of medicines and vaccines to protect our civilian population against the kind of biological agents our adversaries are most likely to obtain or develop
...the President requested $94 million for HHS to build a civilian stockpile of antidotes and antibiotics to respond to a large scale biological or chemical attack, and to improve the current public health surveillance system in order to rapidly detect chemical or biological agents and analyze resulting disease outbreaks. This increase would almost double HHS pending 1999 request related to chemical and biological warfare.
