Birth Control For Rats?

Joining the portfolio of the wildlife contraceptive market, which already includes OvoControl bait for birds, vaccine ZonaStat – H for horses and GonaCon for deer, will be a contraceptive solution for rats and other rodents.

To manage increasing rat populations and infestations, Neogen Corporation has signed a licensing agreement with Senes Tech Inc. to release a rodent control product that aims at fertility control.

Through the use of existing rodenticides, the population will initially drop in the short-term. However, the introduction of a fertility control product is necessary to manage rodent populations in the long-term.

Unlike traditional rodenticides, which are intended to directly kill rodents, the new birth control for rats will chemically accelerate premature aging in rats. To disrupt their reproductive cycles, the new technology by Senes Tech will induce early menopause in female rats. This is a useful tool considering a single female rat can have up to 144 offspring a year.

This product is “environmentally friendly and sustainable in the pest management industry,” says Dr. Loretta Mayer, Senes Tech’s co-founder and chief scientific officer. The manufacturing and marketing of this rodent birth control will initiate safe and sustainable pest control methods across the globe.

Note: At this time, Competitive Pest Services is unable to offer contraceptive treatments for rodents. We will update the pages here if anything changes.
