Permitting of OvoControl in Hawaii

Due to the abundance of threatened and endangered species, OvoControl use in Hawaii requires some additional steps.  These are outlined on the OvoControl P label as follows,

  • Prior to application, applicator must contact the Department of Land and Natural Resources and obtain a Wildlife Control Permit if one is required.
  • Do not apply in areas where nene goose (Nesochen sandvicensis), Hawaiian coot (Fulica alai), Hawaiian moorhen (Gallinula chloropus sandvicensis) and Hawaiian duck (Anas wyvilliana) are known to occupy or graze.
  • Users must notify the Pesticides Branch of the State of Hawaii Department of Agriculture, in writing prior to use. Two weeks advance notice must be given to allow time for consultation with Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

At least two weeks prior to the time of intended application, please contact the Pesticides Branch at the Hawaii Department of Agriculture.  A sample request letter is provided in the link.  The contact at HDOA is as follows,
