Depending on your geography, pigeons can reproduce all year long, although breeding is concentrated in the spring and fall. If considering an OvoControl® program for pigeons or other pest birds, the winter is a good time to get started.
The first step is to condition birds to a daily baiting routine with an automatic pigeon feeder and pre-bait (cracked corn). These cost-effective units take all the labor out of an OvoControl program and condition the birds to "breakfast" every morning. The birds get accustomed to the daily routine and come to expect the handout. You know that they are conditioned when the flock shows up 10-15 minutes before the feeder triggers. See the OvoControl User's Guide for complete details.
Once the weather turns a little warmer and the days get a little longer, transition the birds from cracked corn to OvoControl. Instead of a population boom every spring, watch the flock gradually decline over the summer.
OvoControl is a ready-to-use bait, dispensed on flat rooftops with an automatic wildlife feeder. This effective and humane technology is especially useful for managing birds in larger areas without having to resort to poisons or labor-intensive trapping programs.
