ContraPest as an addition to the existing integrated pest management (IPM) program
SenesTech, the rodent fertility control experts and inventors of the only EPA-registered contraceptive for male and female rats announced the deployment of ContraPest into one of the largest agricultural grain export companies in the world.
“20 per cent of the world’s stored food supply is lost to rats’ consumption and contamination, with estimates over 30 per cent when specifically referring to grain storage and transport. It is a particularly difficult pest control challenge, as there is a constant influx of new rats when the grain is loaded or delivered, and the potential use of lethal tools is limited. This is one of the pest control challenges that led the Company to develop ContraPest,” said Joel Fruendt, SenesTech’s President and CEO.
Fruendt continued, “With this customer and this initial deployment, our experts worked with the pest management professionals to develop and deploy ContraPest as an addition to the existing integrated pest management (IPM) program. If this follows the success we have seen in other customer segments, this initial deployment represents a significant account growth potential.”
