SenesTech has developed an innovative technology for managing animal pest populations through fertility control as opposed to a lethal approach.
ContraPest's novel technology and approach targets the reproductive capabilities of both sexes in rat populations, inducing egg loss in female rats and impairing sperm development in males. Using a proprietary bait delivery method, ContraPest is dispensed in a highly palatable liquid formulation that promotes sustained consumption by rat communities. ContraPest is designed, formulated and dispensed to be low hazard for handlers and non-target species such as wildlife, livestock and pets, where the active ingredients break down rapidly, unlike rodenticides. In contrast, the historical approach to managing rat pest populations, rodenticides, carries a high risk of environmental contamination and the poisoning of non-target animals, pets and children. ContraPest is a Restricted Use product.
SenesTech believes its innovative non-lethal approach, targeting reproduction, is more humane, less harmful to the environment, and more effective in providing a sustainable solution to pest infestations than traditional lethal pest management methods. SenesTech believes ContraPest® will establish a new paradigm in rodent control, resulting in improved performance in rodent control over rodenticides, without the negative environmental effects of rodenticides.
