TRMVC is currently working implementing sUAVs (Drones) into our services provided for our clients.
Staff is licensed IAW FAA Part 107 and uses sUAVs for aerial photography, to locate mosquito sources. We have applied for FAA Part 137, with the intent to utilize drones to larvicide sources currently inaccessible, in order to reduce the need for adulticide fogging. As of July 2018, Three Rivers MVC is the first company in the Pacific Northwest to be authorized by the FAA to conduct mosquito control liquid spraying missions, with a small Unmanned Aircraft. We are in the process of completing the Oregon Department of Agriculture requirements and will be fully implemented soon. We are currently licensed and applying pesticides by UAV in Washington State.
Our second goal was to implement the granular drone. We currently are certified and licensed to operate in Washington and in the process of becoming licensed in Oregon.
