Controlling Pigeon Population in Chemical Plants


South Carolina has a highly developed chemical manufacturing industry. Chemical plants are typically characterised by large scope and extensive facilities and structures.

The Problem The plant is relatively isolated from other commercial or residential activity. Site management had tried and failed with other techniques to control the pigeons. There were an estimated 200 pigeons at the plant loafing and nesting on different structures at the start of their program.

The Solution A contraceptive program augmented by aggressive trapping to quickly draw down adult bird numbers. A single feeder was installed on the flat rooftop of a utility building, dispensing bait at sunrise each morning.

The Results Within six months there were just five pigeons remaining at the site. OvoControl (reducing reproduction) in combination with aggressive trapping (increasing mortality) were successful in rapidly reducing the bird burden.
