December 5, 2023

LOGO: SENSETECHSenesTech, a leader in fertility control to manage animal pest populations, has announced its ContraPest products have been registered for sale and immediate use in Puerto Rico. ContraPest is the registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a  rat contraceptive impacting both male and female rats. It is designed to fit seamlessly into all integrated pest management programs, improving the overall goal of effective pest management.

“Puerto Rico, as an island nation, is ideally positioned to benefit from ContraPest’s unique fertility control features. Similar to many other islands, rats in Puerto Rico have posed a huge problem for society, whether it be food contamination or destruction, infrastructure damage or public health risks. The grain industry, in particular, has been hit hard by rat infestations, endangering food security for the island” Joel Fruendt, SenesTech president and CEO, said in a news release.

At press time, SenesTech is in the process of completing Puerto Rico product registration for Evolve, SenesTech’s all-new soft bait product that has similar efficacy to ContraPest but in a user-friendly, non-liquid format.

SenesTech currently offers four trademarked fertility control options to manage rat infestations:

  • The Ultimate Bait System with ContraPest is designed for pest management professionals with its larger size and standard bait box deployment.
  • The Isolate Bait System with ContraPest is an efficient and easy-to-use bait system, featuring an integrated tank-tray unit catering to both professionals and the do-it-yourself market.
  • The Elevate Bait System with ContraPest is designed to be easily deployed above ground with multiple options for mounting in the rafters of barns, granaries, storage and manufacturing facilities — wherever rats are feeding, transiting or hiding. The novel suspended bait station is easily accessible by rats, but out of the way of people, pets, livestock, food stores, etc.
  • Evolve Soft Bait, a soft bait contraceptive for rats in a highly palatable, user-friendly format, convenient for professionals and consumers alike to deploy.
