New Birth Control product approved for controlling Rats.

A developer of proprietary technologies for managing animal pest populations through fertility control, has announced the launch of ContraPest to be marketed for use initially in controlling rat infestations. Senes Tech’s first fertility control product will target the reproductive capabilities of both sexes, inducing egg loss in female rodents and impairing sperm development in males. Using proprietary bait stations, ContraPest is dispensed in a highly palatable liquid formulation that promotes sustained consumption by rodent communities. ContraPest is designed, formulated, and dispensed to be safe for handlers and non-target species such as wildlife, livestock and pets. The Company believes its 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.
