How can Aerial Mosquito Services help you?
If you are lucky, you might have heard a little buzz before a mosquito landed on you and bit you. They probably left a bump that will itch like crazy for a couple days, or worse a dose dengue fever. As global warming continues and human activity increases, mosquitoes are at an unprecedented high. So how do we lower their numbers efficiently with such rapid growth? The answer lies in drones.
Drones can easily access remote areas that may be close to impossible to reach on foot.
You may be familiar the technique of helicopters or planes spraying pesticides aimed at killing mosquitoes. This method whilst great for huge fields does not work as well for smaller areas needing help. Mosquitos often leave eggs equally in small bodies of water or hard-to-reach areas, this is where drones come in handy!
What drones do we use at Competitive Pest Services?
The drones we use here at Competitive Pest Services are the XAG P30 AGRICULTURAL UAS this cutting edge technology is able to traverse different terrains with ease, producing effective and quick aerial mosquito spraying solutions. These drones are also able to charge in just 25-30 minutes, the P series UAS is also able to complete its tasks whilst protecting the environment by reducing 30% of pesticide use and 90% of water waste.
How do these drones work?
Technology has come far, and it is hard to find a better example than modern drones, These drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be piloted to fly via a controller much like you would find for a videogame. Pest control experts can then use these drones to spray pesticides and destroy any threats of mosquitoes in areas that otherwise would be extremely difficult to get to. These drones are able to do incredible things such as refuel themselves and even work autonomously. They can follow a set route over and over and can cover parts of land much quicker and more effectively than traditional methods
Is this really the future?
Using drones for pest control is already a reality and is already a widespread industry across Asia. While other relevant authorities in other parts of the world are slower to adopt drones for these types of jobs, many places in the world are now allowing drones to be used for commercial operations in agriculture, horticulture, weed and pest control, and spreading microgranular are among the diverse uses now being found for drones. As time goes on more and more businesses are seeing the true potential of harnessing the skill set of a drone for their needs and their customers alike.
Why are mosquitoes such a problem?
Mosquito populations recently are exploding in Australia, with the warm weather and strong tides bringing hordes of the blood-sucking insects to the east coast while flooding in central Australia has triggered warnings of mosquito-borne viruses. Malaria, Zika Virus and Dengue Fever just to name a few are all incredibly dangerous to humans and in some cases deadly. This paired with there very high breeding rate is a recipe for disaster female mosquitoes can lay a set of up to 100 eggs around every third night after mating only once. They typically lay as many as three sets before dying. So, as you can likely imagine it’s a real war keeping them under control but with the technological advances of drone the problem can be managed much more effectively.
How to spot a mosquito infestation
If you live or work in a humid climate and it is near a water source chances are a mosquito infestation likely won’t be too far behind, but what are the telltale signs of this? How can you spot one early so that you can deal with the situation appropriately?
Check areas that have produce
⦁ Male mosquitoes tend to feed off nectar and other sweets. If you find mosquitoes hovering over your produce or any other food in your property, then it might be time to start worrying about an infestation.
Listen out for buzzing
⦁ Mosquitos, like lots of other flying insects, create an incredibly annoying buzzing noise that’s heard when they’re in close proximity. Their buzzing is more distinct then other insects like bee’s or flies for example due to a very high-pitched noise, more so than other insects. Although you may not always see them, often if you’re hearing this sound, then chances are there are mosquitoes around nearby somewhere.
⦁ It is the female mosquito that is the number one culprit of mosquito bites. With their male counterparts preferring nectar as mentioned earlier. The female mosquitoes need blood to produce their eggs. So, if you find yourself being bitten on your property, then this is a sign that female mosquitoes are there and laying eggs.
