Senestech Timeline

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 providing 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.
