OvoControl P (nicarbazin 0.5%), “birth control” for birds, now registered in Canada
Based on a growing drumbeat of interest from pigeon impacted facilities, Innolytics initiated and has now received a registration for OvoControl P in Canada. Applicators in Canada are now able to order and use the contraceptive for pigeons.;
“We continue to receive a steady stream of inquiries from our neighbors to the North,” indicated Erick Wolf, CEO of Innolytics, manufacturer of OvoControl P. “Consistent with the US market, impacted facilities want access to the “birth control” program for pigeons. We can now supply the market in Canada with a product registered by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), Health Canada (Pest Control Product Reg. No. 32670).”
Gardex Chemicals, Ltd. in Etobicoke, Ontario has been named the master distributor and will represent OvoControl P in Canada. Gardex’s President, Karen Furgiuele commented, “We look forward to establishing the distribution network for OvoControl P in Canada. OvoControl P represents an innovative new product for the market where pigeon control strategies have typically been limited to physical exclusion or tactics aimed at increasing mortality that only provide short-term relief. OvoControl P provides the opportunity to abate the population of birds, safely and effectively over time.”
OvoControl P is a ready-to-use bait, dispensed on flat rooftops with a mechanical feeder. This effective and humane technology is especially useful for managing pigeon flocks in larger facilities without having to resort to poisons or labor intensive trapping programs.
