Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: A Guide for Pest Management Professionals
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), often referred to as drones, have become increasingly popular in recent years for recreational as well as professional applications. Many drones are often equipped with a camera that allows the user to view and record aerial pictures and videos from the device. This offers the user with a “birds-eye” view of their surroundings that can be useful for inspecting properties and structures while keeping the user safely on the ground. While the popularity of drones continues to grow, so have the regulations imposed on drones when used for commercial purposes. The goal of this document is to offer guidance on the steps required by individuals and companies that wish to utilize drones in their pest and wildlife inspection services.
