About SenesTech

Founded by two scientists with a deep love for animals, Senestech has developed an innovative method for managing animal populations through fertility control. We focus on developing effective solutions, that are grounded in science, proven through research and value people, communities and our environment.

Innovative solutions to age-old problems

SenesTech’s first product ContraPest®, applies our revolutionary technology to a global challenge that has persisted since the Middle Ages: the proliferation of rats in both urban and agricultural settings. ContraPest® is a proven technology aimed at providng a non-lethal, fertility control solution that is readily consumed by rats. Since continued consumption reduces fertility and rapid reproduction is the root cause of rat infestations, ContraPest® introduces a new integrated pest management tool to help magnify the success of your pest management approach.

EPA registration and commercialization

We received EPA registration in 2016 and are currently registered in 49 states and Washington D.C. We are awaiting approval in California.

The science behind ContraPest® is well established in both laboratory and field studies, and is now available commercially to licensed pest management professionals commercially through national distributors: Univar and Target Specialty Products.
