- SenesTech Inc., a visionary leader in fertility control to manage animal pest populations, has developed products that show success in limiting rat populations using unique non-lethal fertility reduction products
- Rodents are often associated with carrying diseases that can affect humans, and SenesTech’s non-lethal population-reducing technology targets this major problem in a uniquely humane, environmentally conscious, yet effective way
- The Arizona-based company has developed two primary products — its liquid ContraPest(R) brand, and the recently introduced Evolve(TM) Soft Bait formulation, soft bait being favored by rodent control professionals
- The company anticipates using their technology to develop similar pest-control products for other species in the near future
Close on the heels of introducing a new product expected to create exponential revenue growth for the company, pest animal control innovator SenesTech (NASDAQ: SNES) reported its Q3 financial status to investors Nov. 9, highlighting the company’s continued progress in a year that has seen a record sequential quarterly increase in its earnings.
An archived recording of the Q3 report can be found on SenesTech’s Investor Relations page, at https://ibn.fm/AeEie.
SenesTech’s commitment to sustainable, non-toxic rodent reduction, is reflected in the company’s drive to market a global pest solution that introduces fertility control as the ideal alternative to toxic poisons.
Its trademarked liquid ContraPest(R) bait and Evolve(TM) Soft Bait both target the rapid birth rate in rodent populations, which can result in 15,000 offspring for a single pair of breeding rats in a year’s time and half a billion descendants within three years, according to research cited by President & CEO Joel Fruendt during an October webcast also available on the company’s archived recording webpage.
ContraPest established the company’s reputation with a brand that has shown success in reducing rat populations and subsequently increasing the profitability of poultry enterprises on both the East and West Coasts. The pest control industry’s preference for non-liquid applications then led SenesTech to formulate a non-liquid soft bait solution in its new Evolve product.
“Evolve was developed to offer customers a soft bait product that has similar efficacy to ContraPest(R), but in a format that is easier to deploy and that they can use daily in their integrated pest management programs,” Fruendt stated in a Nov. 1 news release announcing that the company is now taking orders from commercial customers for the soft bait formulation (https://ibn.fm/guMGb).
“Evolve is also suited for use by consumers,” he added, “and we expect to announce partnerships with e-commerce providers and big box retailers by the end of the year.”
The company states that Evolve is highly palatable to rats, and can be placed virtually anywhere rats are found, ranging from outdoor parks and recreation facilities to medical facilities and residential locations.
Evolve currently is only formulated for rats, although the company expects to expand to other pest species in the near future. The product’s active ingredient is a compound derived from cottonseed oil administered in doses too low to affect other species’ fertility as long as the product isn’t consumed in substantial quantities over extended periods of time, but the company recommends using tamper-resistant bait stations to minimize potential non-target species exposure.
Evolve is designed for repeated application. Its non-lethal approach to rodent birth control anticipates a cumulative effect over time with a half-life of approximately three days after consumption, and the company states rats will regain their fertility within approximately six weeks after they stop consuming the bait.
With the advent of cooler weather in the Northern Hemisphere, rodent activity becomes more noticeable because of their efforts to find warm refuge. An estimated 21 million homes across the United States will be affected by rodent activity during the season, according to pest control corporation Orkin (https://ibn.fm/ASt6r).
SenesTech’s original liquid ContraPest brand has the benefit of targeting hard-to-get roof rodents, and is the only rat contraception product for both male and female rats registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”).
