Drone Inspections for Bird and Pest Control, Part 1
Within numerous areas of life, technology has made a permanent positive impact that’s here for good. There are a plethora of great examples, even within an industry like pest and bird control.
At A-1 Exterminators, we provide a great example of this theme with our free drone inspections. We’ve long been a top provider of Bird Barrier products for bird control, and we’re one of few companies who will also provide a free inspection of your home or building using our professional drone technology. This allows us to get a birds-eye (no pun intended) view of your property and any inaccessible sections birds might become a risk in, which in turn allows us to protect your property in the ideal ways. In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over the progression of drone technology to this point, plus some of the areas of bird and pest control drone inspections assist with and why this sort of technology use is only likely to increase in the future.
Drone Popularity and Usage
Drones first became a part of popular culture within the last decade or so, and they quickly were realized as potential value-adds by many different organizations. They were a major focus of several military projects in their nascent stages, and were also used by numerous police departments, border control groups and related organizations for surveillance.
In addition, they’ve been used for search-and-rescue and other life-saving operations. They’re also prominent players in shipping and package delivery testing by Amazon and other companies. And finally, some of those at the forefront of pest and bird control, including our team at A-1 Exterminators, have begun utilizing them for several specific benefits within our field.
General Safety Themes
One of the first major themes provided by drones within a pest and bird control situation is improved safety. With a drone and a licensed pilot (more on this area later), it’s easy for our professionals to inspect every crevice of even a large commercial building – including those areas that may not have been safe for us to access otherwise, meaning they would have gone without inspection and could have served as a nesting spot for birds.
Instead of any need for a ladder or staff risks, we’ll simply send up our drone. Similar themes have been utilized across several areas of pest control around the globe, including some companies who have even used heat-seeking drones to test for hornets and other insects.
Bird Control Improvement
As we touched on above, the improvement to your bird control services is another major plus here. Not only are we able to view otherwise hidden or inaccessible areas of the structure, we can perform a bird inspection much faster than other companies who are still doing this in a manual fashion. If you have a potential bird nesting issue taking place, we’ll identify it and get to work remedying it faster than the competition due to our drone inspections.
