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