Between April and November 1956, the U.S. Army Chemical Corps conducted Operation Drop Kick to test the practicality of employing mosquitoes to carry an entomological warfare agent in different ways. The Corps released uninfected female mosquitoes into a cooperative residential area of Savannah, Georgia, and then estimated how many mosquitoes entered houses and bit people. Within a day the mosquitoes had bitten many people. In 1958, the Corps released 600,000 mosquitoes in Avon Park, Florida.
These tests showed that mosquitoes could be spread by means of various devices.
The 1964 movie Dr. Strangelove also refers to an Operation Drop Kick.
The TV series Archer refers to Operation Drop Kick as the codename of a CIA mission to take over a Latin American country.
