Learn how we help manufacturing facilities solve their pigeon problems.

Large physical sites such as oil refineries, chemical plants, and power plants are ideal candidates for OvoControl®.

 

OvoControl® P at a Manufacturing Facility

Large size and scope are common themes for an OvoControl® P application at manufacturing facilities. Pigeons are very mobile pests and can move around freely from one area of the plant to the next. Therefore, a pigeon control program based on OvoControl® P has exceptional utility in these large sites where traditional bird control methods may not be appropriate or cost effective.

Many different large manufacturing facilities, especially ones that produce heat, are favorite havens for pigeons. In most cases, one to three feeders will allow the site to reduce the pigeon population gradually without the re-infestation pressure so common in poisoning or trapping programs. OvoControl® P has demonstrated success in paper mills, oil refineries, food production and pharmaceutical plants.

While baiting birds without killing them may seem counter-intuitive to some applicators, the successful long-term use of OvoControl® P at a wide range of different manufacturing facilities demonstrates otherwise. OvoControl® P is very easy to use in a manufacturing facility — see the website for additional application hints and a User’s Guide.

Pigeon Control at an Oil Refinery

Ever since they were built, pigeons have been a problem for oil refineries. Open structures and heat generating equipment are often the attraction. The pipes, beams & poles inside these facilities provide a perfect haven for pigeons to nest. The birds’ droppings and other debris add additional safety hazards to an already hazardous area.

OvoControl® P provides a safe, easy-to-use and effective solution for oil refineries to control the pigeon population for good. Methods such as trapping and poisoning the birds may alleviate the problem temporarily, although due to their rapid breeding and site fidelity, pigeons always return and repopulate the very attractive site.

OvoControl® P reduces the population naturally, through attrition, over a period of time. With continued use, the population declines at a rate of roughly 50%, annually. With a successful contraceptive program, facilities such as an oil refinery will ultimately drive their pigeon population down by 90 to 95%.

Refineries are often challenging sites for environmental stewardship. Thankfully, OvoControl® P represents an environmentally benign pigeon control strategy which does not pose secondary risks to raptors or scavengers.

Pigeon Control at a Chemical Plant

Pigeons can represent a costly nuisance for chemical plants.  In many cases, these birds have been at the facility ever since it was built. Open structures and heat generating equipment are what generally attracts birds to these sites.  The pipes, beams, catwalks and towers inside these facilities provide a perfect haven for pigeons to nest.  Over time, the nests, feces and debris can cause considerable damage to a plant’s mechanical and electrical components.  Furthermore, the birds’ droppings and other debris add additional health hazards to an already hazardous area.

OvoControl® P provides a safe, easy-to-use and effective solution for all types of chemical facilities to control the pigeon population for good.  Methods such as trapping and poisoning the birds may alleviate the problem temporarily, however, due to their rapid breeding, pigeons always return and repopulate the very attractive site.

OvoControl® P reduces the population naturally, through attrition. With continued use, the population declines at a rate of roughly 50%, annually.  With a successful contraceptive program, facilities such as these will ultimately drive their pigeon population down to 5 to 10% of the original population.

Chemical plants are often challenging sites for environmental stewardship.  Thankfully, OvoControl® P represents an environmentally benign pigeon control strategy which does not pose secondary risks to raptors or scavengers.

Pigeon Control at a Power Plant

Pigeons represent a perennial pest problem at many power utility sites. 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.

Pigeons reside in territorial flocks, a social unit, and pairs mate for life. That is one of the many reasons why a contraceptive program in this species is so effective. OvoControl® Pprevents reproduction and the population of pigeons naturally and predictably declines through attrition.  Since the technology focuses on reproduction, OvoControl® P has far greater long-term efficacy than conventional abatement methods – trap, shoot or poison.

A large power plant will generally require multiple automatic feeders to treat the large number of birds that nest throughout the structures. Since the plants are often isolated, OvoControl® P programs are highly effective at targeting the local population of pigeons.

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