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 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 represents an environmentally benign pigeon control strategy which does not pose secondary risks to raptors or scavengers.
