The case study on West Nile Virus & Mosquito Nuisance Prevention with a UAV, highlighting the usage of Drone Technology in Precision Pest Management & Control
SPH Engineering a drone software company and UAV integration service provider together with their partner GDG Environment, the ecological solutions provider provides a Case Study from a drone-based larviciding research program under the PMRA, Canada’s pesticide regulatory agency.
The goal of the study was to find a solution to quickly manage biological larvicide treatments in large and difficult-to-traverse locations. To work on reducing mosquito nuisance GDG Environment brings different drone and payload models into their fleet and was challenged to monitor a several thousand-hectare region and treat all mosquito breeding sites within it in just five days.
To address the issue of protecting local communities from a natural threat, GDG Environment opted for SPH Engineering’s UgCS .NET SDK software for the West Nile Virus & Mosquito Nuisance Prevention.
