Utility insects

Combining a few ideas...

We saw a living rat that was under remote control on the news in 2002.

Would nanotech (or even microtech) sensibly allow something similar for those household pests like ants and cockroaches?

So, your network of controlled "utility insects" would avoid things like food containers, while cleaning floors of things like dropped food crumbs, or spills. Probably programmed to stay out of the way when people are around, and not leave droppings about.

Turning an irritation into a cleaning tool.

Possibly the control systems might also tap into the insect's senses?

Just a suggestion...

Have your rory
