"The organic industry is a natural part of our broader food and agriculture strategy," said Kenneth Siegel, SenesTech's CEO. "As with their conventional counterparts, organic facilities have struggled with rodent management and are looking for effective solutions.  ContraPest, either alone or as part of a broader integrated pest management program, offers them a new alternative that will reduce both product loss and contamination risk. We are excited that the organic industry is responding to our poison-free solution."

"At Captain Vineyards, as the first and only green winery in Contra Costa County, we take pride in every step of our production process: energy conservation, dry farming, zero waste and reduced carbon footprint. The addition of ContraPest in our integrated pest management plan is an obvious fit," said Sal Captain, owner and winemaker.  "Further, we are pleased to introduce ContraPest to our community of vineyards and others committed to sustainability."

Dr. Loretta P. Mayer, SenesTech's co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer, added, "We are pleased with the reception we are receiving from the  organic food industry of California.  They are welcoming  our commitment to provide them with a product that meets their need for an effective and sustainable solution in pest management that is consistent with their values."

About SenesTech 

SenesTech is changing the paradigm of pest management by targeting the root cause of the problem: reproduction.

ContraPest® is an innovative technology with an approach that 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.

We believe ContraPest® will establish a new paradigm in rodent control, resulting in a decreased reliance on lethal options. For more information visit the SenesTech website at
