Entomological warfare- Unit 731 had a bacterial production area that was designed to produce large quantities of bacteria for eventual use as biological weapons. To test the bacteria they deliberately infected and vivisected human subjects. They used live patients but no anesthesia, thinking that otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to obtain accurate information on what was happening to the human body. They also researched how to protect themselves against the disease, which means that their biological weapons program was strong offensively and defensively.General Ishii turned his attention to the plague bacterium as a candidate for a biological weapon since its casualties were higher than other diseases. So he constructed a clay bomb filled with oxygen and plague-infected fleas that could be dropped from aircraft at a height of 200-300 meters without leaving a trace. Each bomb contained 30,000 fleas. On October 4, 1940, the Japanese dropped plague-infected fleas over Quzhou, a small town in western Zhejiang Province. In just one year more than 2,000 people in Quzhou died from this plague. The next year, a railway worker brought the plague from Quzhou to the city of Yiwu and more that 1,000 people in Yiwu died from this plague within a year. Thousands of people died because of this attack. #urbanfarmsista #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #entomologist #blackentomologist #entomology
