OvoControl P has been reclassified as an "unrestricted" or "general-use" pesticide by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CADPR).  The flock management tool, birth control for pigeons, is now "general-use" in 49 of 50 states.  

 "The original 'restricted-use' designation limited the use of OvoControl P to licensed applicators only," said Erick Wolf, CEO of Innolytics.  "With the new classification, no special license or permit is required to purchase or use the pigeon control product in California." 

Cameron Riddell, President of Bird Barrier of America, the newest OvoControl distributor, added that, "the new classification makes OvoControl that much easier to use for the pest control community and others with bird management issues."

"Site monitoring requirements on the new label have also been revised providing for a significant reduction in labor for both PMP's and building managers," added Riddell.   

Established in 2003, Innolytics, LLC is a privately held company that focuses on developing humane population management technology for wildlife.  For further information, see the company website at www.ovocontrol.com.
