Pigeon Control at Power Plants

OvoControl® P
Where to use

Power Plants

Given the large footprint of a power utility and perennial pigeon problems, these plants offer the ideal scenario for a productive contraceptive program for pigeons.


Pigeons represent a perennial pest problem at many power utilities. In addition to slip and fall hazards, bird droppings contaminate sensitive equipment which results in more frequent and costly maintenance cycles. Many facilities have experimented with conventional abatement techniques but none have any lasting effect.

OvoControl® P, birth control for birds, has helped hundreds of different plants drive down pigeon numbers. The technology lends itself ideally to large areas where exclusion systems may be cost-prohibitive or impractical. Power utilities have all the attributes for a successful OvoControl® P program – wide open spaces, lots of geography, heat production, and protection from predators — a highly attractive site for pigeons.

With proper use of the OvoControl® P program, power utility plants can ultimately expect the pigeon population reduced by 90 to 95%. As long as the program is continued, the population will continue to decrease at a rate of 50%, annually.
