    Bracken Spraying by Helicopter

    Any recommendations on who does a good job at reasonable price?

    Google comes up with PDG helicopters in Inverness - anyone used them or are still about.

    Is there anyone in Ireland does it? Also any DARD restrictions on when spraying can be carried out? Anything else I need to watch for - never done it before so know nothing about it.

    Replies appreciated.

    As regards Asulox in the UK (and presumably Ireland?)

    During 2012, the contractors (helicopter and ground based companies) will be able to apply Asulam for landowners and managers, providing it was purchased before 31 December 2011.

    Used to get grants for this in the 1990s.

    Is anyone still doing it in Wales or anywhere else?

    I think these are the people that do most work in N Wales http://www.mdairservices.com/
    Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

    Yes looks like the Co we used to use.

    I've not been aware of much bracken spraying going on in Wales in recent years.

    I believe MDAir Services are ceasing to operate wef he end of the 2017 season. Polo Aviation, who supplied Bracken spraying helicopters to MDAir, are expected to take over much of the work in the U.K.
