The Humane Society of the United States praised the recent decision by the Environmental Protection Agency to remove the "restricted-use" classification for OvoControl P, a promising birth control agent for use in pigeons.   "We are extremely pleased with the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to ease restrictions on OvoControl P," said John Hadidian, director of Urban Wildlife Programs for The HSUS. "General-use approval will make OvoControl P more readily available to communities and businesses that want to control pigeon populations humanely and effectively." 

The first of its kind, OvoControl effectively controls the reproduction of treated birds.  Communities and businesses around the United States are adopting this safe, effective and humane technology to manage pigeons in larger areas without having to resort to avian toxicants and their associated risks.  The product is administered to the birds in the form of pigeon friendly pellets as a once-a-day snack.
