PIGEON BIRTH CONTROL PRODUCTS
How OvoControl® Works
Evicom are the Australian distributors for OvoControl® P. A specialised pigeon control program which is the most effective and humane solution to resolving pigeon problems.
OvoControl® — birth control for pigeons — is a proven, safe and effective solution for controlling the pigeon population when physical deterrents aren’t feasible or cost effective.
Due to their remarkable breeding capabilities, pigeons can represent a particularly challenging pest. The key to solving a chronic pigeon problem is to interrupt the constant breeding and repopulation of the flock with “birth control” for the birds.
The OvoControl® pigeon control program is ideal for large industrial facilities and other places where physical exclusion is not an option. With an OvoControl® program, the pigeon population will decline at a rate of 50%, annually, with an ending population of 5-10% of the starting point.
OvoControl®P (nicarbazin 0.5%) is a ready-to-use bait that controls the reproduction of treated birds, causing the population to decline. This effective and humane technology is especially useful for managing pigeon flocks in large areas without having to resort to poisons and their associated risks.
For OvoControl’s contraceptive program to be effective, you must use an automatic feeder. The machine triggers and feeds the pigeons once a day so they receive the necessary amount of bait. Additional accessories can be purchased as below.
PERMIT AUTHORISED BY AUSTRALIAN PESTICIDES AND VETERINARY MEDICINES AUTHORITY (APVMA)
Approved in Australia by the APVMA and approved by the US EPA in 49 states across the USA, OvoControl®P is ideal for large areas where some pigeons can be tolerated but where a substantially reduced population is desired. OvoControl®P is non-hazardous and supported by the RSPCA Australia, Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, Audubon and the Peregrine Fund - LEED Certified.
Baiting can begin at any time - flat rooftops are ideal. OvoControl®P has a wide margin of safety and efficacy.
PERSONS WHO CAN USE THE PRODUCT

OvoControl®P can be used by Pest Control Operators, Government Employees, Council Operators, Military Base, Commercial and Industrial Facility Employees responsible for vertebrate pest management who are suitably qualified and experienced in the application of agricultural chemicals.
Costs are most often a function of bird numbers - the more pigeons, the more bait and feeders are required to effectively abate the population. Generally speaking, a contraceptive program is most competitive with other more conventional methods of pigeon control.
OvoControl®P is applied once daily with an automatic feeder at a rate of 0.57kg/100 pigeons
OvoControl®P has a contraceptive effect on birds and has no secondary effects in birds of prey. Whilst OvoControl®P has a wide margin of safety and efficacy care should be taken to avoid administration to non-target birds and other animals. For a current copy of the APVMA approved label, click here.
