Bacteria Locating Land Mines

Well, that's a lot more efficient and human than using rats or dogs.

The problem is that there are millions of land mines scattered around.  Who's going to pay to clean up the mess when you scan a valley and find it completely freckled with the damn things?  Comparatively little money has gone into landmine removal, because few people with money are threatened by mines and few victims have money.  More likely they'll just block off densely mined areas.  >_<
