They’ve Been Using BioDrop’s Services

“The BioDrop team is wonderful to work with, very professional and communication is great. They’ve helped us build a customized biocontrol plan to target vine mealybug in our vineyards. Their innovative drone technology not only helps us solve our labor shortage challenge, but it also minimizes soil compaction that an extra pass with tractors would cause on our vineyards.”

“Population of predatory mites was significantly higher (average of 50% more) in the peach blocks treated by UAV-IQ, and the untreated blocks showed more mite stress than the treated blocks. We’re planning on expanding the predatory mites release next year on more stone fruit blocks and releasing other beneficials on other crop types.”

I would feel very confident in hiring this service again in future years. As growers who are very busy during our peak season, it was nice not having to invest any labor in the process – the BioDrop team showed up, flew the drone, and that was it! Easy and cost effective control.

A Team of IPM Experts

The BioDrop service helps growers who do or do not have teams of specialists to build integrated pest management (IPM) plans and efficiently integrate them into their operations. A fully licensed, specially trained and insured drone pilot will show up at your property a time which has been coordinated with your work schedule as well as the insectary delivery schedule to ensure applications are made when the product is at its peak level of performance.

State of the Art Release Technology

​The BioDrop technology includes specially designed hoppers and release devices which gently and precisely apply a wide range of beneficial insects, mites and micro organisms which target agricultural pests. The release system’s onboard computer uses the drone’s telemetry data to plan and regulate the applications to provide highly uniformed applications throughout fields, vineyards and orchards.
