OvoControl P, “birth control” for pigeons, is now available through distribution in Mexico. “Just as in the U.S. market, many commercial sites and communities in Mexico are plagued with pigeons,” explained Erick Wolf, CEO of Innolytics, maker of OvoControl. “More than anything, as the popularity of the product has grown, requests for the product have also increased from Mexico.” ECONTROL in Mexico City is the distributor of OvoControl P. The representative of the company, Benjamin Gómez, commented, “Especially based on our export economy, the critical importance of food safety in Mexico cannot be overstated. Our pest control customers and their clients are keenly interested in innovative options to control the pigeon population, safely and humanely. OvoControl meets these criteria and fits well with ECONTROL’s portfolio. OvoControl works like an IGR, but for birds instead of insects. We believe that birth control for pigeons is a valuable addition to the portfolio of bird control tools that can be used in Mexico.” OvoControl is a ready-to-use bait, which is dispensed on flat roof covers with an automatic feeder.
