The Parabug solution is transforming traditional biological pest control
with the rapid and effective release of beneficial insects

Australia's most efficient biological pest control service

Parabug is a patents pending tool to bring about the greater use of biological control of agricultural pests.  Agricultural pests can wreak havoc, destroying a harvest and potentially threatening crops throughout expansive growing areas. Unfortunately, the option to apply beneficial organisms to combat invasive pests can be costly, labor-intensive, time consuming and inaccurate.

Given that the world population will be increasing exponentially; novel solutions must be made to effectively provide the world with a reliable, safe, affordable, and sustainable food supply.  Now with drone technology and Parabug, it is possible to complete the same task in a fraction of the time, and at a far less cost than doing it by hand. 

The use of beneficial insects forms part of integrated pest management, combining cultural, biological and chemical means to achieve sustainable pest management. The current industry standard for application of biologicals comes with an intense labour requirement, lack of precision, and lack of timeliness. The application of biologicals by hand is not only labour intensive but poses other problems which result in a higher cost of application. For example, the high cost comes from not only time and related hourly wages but also from general and workers compensation insurance, and the opportunity cost of not using limited labour for other essential activities.

The solution to elevate the use of biologicals is the Parabug system. Parabug uses remote piloted aircraft (RPA) or "drones", for the distribution of biologicals, granulars, and other agricultural materials. The Parabug system provides for rapid, timely and cost effective dispersal.
