Costly Maintenance Problem Solved with OvoControl

Site Description

Laughlin Resort Plagued by PigeonsLocated in Laughlin, NV, Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino is situated on the Colorado River. The expansive hotel includes 1,400 rooms in a high rise structure. In addition to a large casino and parking facilities, the hotel offers an RV park adjacent to the hotel.

The Problem

For years, pigeons were attracted by the food, quality nesting sites and shade from the intense summer heat. While not a large population of birds, loafing and nesting areas were extensive and pigeon debris represented a perennial maintenance issue, especially in the RV Park.

The OvoControl Solution

Previous attempts at exclusion and reducing the population were unproductive. Instead, the hotel installed a single OvoControl feeder on top of an outdoor restroom facility in the RV Park. Triggered daily, in the early morning hours when the pigeons are most hungry, the automatic feeder delivers the precise amount of bait
required for the population.

The Results

OvoControl Feeder Rid Resort of Pigeons in One YearWithin one year, there were no longer any pigeons at the Laughlin hotel and RV Park. This kind of performance is not unusual in the desert climate where summertime weather conditions are severe.
