Nicarbazin is the active ingredient found in OvoControl P bait which is used to decrease pigeon populations by reducing egg hatch. Nicarbazin is made up of two chemical components: DNC (4,4' -dinitrocarbanilide) and HDP (2-hydroxy-4,6 dimethylpyrimidine). DNC is the active component while HDP increases absorption of the complex by the pigeons. Nicarbazin is also registered as a veterinary drug for use against a disease in chickens called coccidiosis, which is cause by the parasite Eimeria.
