FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SenesTech, Inc. (SNES), a developer of proprietary technologies for managing animal pest populations through fertility control, today announced a national distribution agreement with Target Specialty Products for ContraPest®. In addition to distribution, Target Specialty Products will be marketing and selling ContraPest throughout its network.
"Target Specialty Products is an excellent sales and distribution partner for SenesTech, with their direct connection with the pest control operators, with their extensive breadth and depth of coverage throughout the U.S., and their commitment to a vision of protecting the environment. They will provide us with a more extensive nationwide sales coverage in the pest management sector," said Dr. Loretta P. Mayer, Chair, CEO and co-founder of SenesTech. "As they have assured us, that consistent with their core values, they will work hard to embrace innovation and provide their customers with access to quality products. ContraPest is a clear example of such innovation and quality."
SenesTech has developed an innovative technology for managing animal pest populations through fertility control as opposed to a lethal approach.
ContraPest's novel technology and approach targets the reproductive capabilities of both sexes in rat populations, inducing egg loss in female rats and impairing sperm development in males. Using a proprietary bait delivery method, ContraPest is dispensed in a highly palatable liquid formulation that promotes sustained consumption by rat communities. ContraPest is designed, formulated and dispensed to be low hazard for handlers and non-target species such as wildlife, livestock and pets, where the active ingredients break down rapidly, unlike rodenticides. In contrast, the historical approach to managing rat pest populations, rodenticides, carries a high risk of environmental contamination and the poisoning of non-target animals, pets and children. ContraPest is a Restricted Use product.
We believe our innovative non-lethal approach, targeting reproduction, is more humane, less harmful to the environment, and more effective in providing a sustainable solution to pest infestations than traditional lethal pest management methods. We believe ContraPest® will establish a new paradigm in rodent control, resulting in improved performance in rodent control over rodenticides, without the negative environmental effects of rodenticides.
