SenesTech Launches Sound Science Speaker Series
Dr. Stephen Shuster to speak on Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 6:00pm ET (3:00pm PT)

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SenesTech, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNES), a developer of proprietary technologies for managing animal pest populations through fertility control, will be hosting a Sound Science Speaker Series showcasing the scientists and researchers who have made substantial contributions in rodent/animal behavior, rodent management, fertility control and other related fields.  The series will be hosted and moderated by SenesTech's Chief Research Officer and co-founder, Dr. Cheryl A. Dyer. The first speaker will be Dr. Stephen Shuster, Professor of Invertebrate Zoology at Northern Arizona University, discussing his recent research on the development of non-responsiveness to pesticides. 

SenesTech, Inc. has developed an innovative technology for managing animal pest populations through fertility control as opposed to a lethal approach. The Company's first fertility control product, ContraPest(R), is marketed for use initially in controlling rat infestations. (PRNewsfoto/SenesTech, Inc.) (PRNewsfoto/SenesTech, Inc.)

"It would appear, from Dr. Shuster's work, that resistance to pesticides is inevitable and that fertility control is unlikely to lead to resistance or non-responsiveness. Non-responsiveness – also known colloquially as 'resistance' – is directly related to current practices in rodent control and is immediately relevant in Europe and the U.S. We look forward to having Dr. Shuster join us and expand on his research findings," said Dr. Dyer.
