OvoControl®, a safe, humane and effective contraceptive for pigeons developed by Innolytics will be distributed by Eldan.
OvoControl is a ready-to-use bait that interferes with the reproduction of treated birds, causing the population to decline. This effective and humane technology is especially useful for managing pigeon flocks in larger areas without having to resort to poisons and their associated risks.
Dr. Alexander MacDonald, Innolytics’ CSO remarked, “Like so many urban areas, Israel is also plagued by too many pigeons. Many different communities and businesses are increasingly willing to the take the steps necessary to control the populations. As a contraceptive, OvoControl acts to limit reproduction and represents one of the most effective bird control techniques on the market today”.
“Israel is very sensitive to environmental and wildlife issues,” added Moshe Ben-Simon, Senior VP and Head of Life Science Division at Eldan, the OvoControl distributor in Israel. “There are just two ways to manage a population – either increase mortality or reduce reproduction,” added Ben-Simon. “Most conventional techniques focus on the former – the OvoControl technology on the latter strategy.”
Innolytics is a privately held company located outside of San Diego, CA focused on developing safe, humane and effective contraceptive techniques for wildlife. To learn more about Innolytics or OvoControl, please visit the company website at www.ovocontrol.com
