SenesTech, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNES), a developer of proprietary technologies for managing animal pest populations through fertility control, announced recently its further expansion into the organic products industry with the addition of ContraPest® for rodent control at Captain Vineyards.
"The organic industry is a natural part of our broader food and agriculture strategy," said Kenneth Siegel, SenesTech's CEO. "As with their conventional counterparts, organic facilities have struggled with rodent management and are looking for effective solutions. ContraPest, either alone or as part of a broader integrated pest management program, offers them a new alternative that will reduce both product loss and contamination risk. We are excited that the organic industry is responding to our poison-free solution."
"At Captain Vineyards, as the first and only green winery in Contra Costa County, we take pride in every step of our production process: energy conservation, dry farming, zero waste and reduced carbon footprint. The addition of ContraPest in our integrated pest management plan is an obvious fit," said Sal Captain, owner and winemaker. "Further, we are pleased to introduce ContraPest to our community of vineyards and others committed to sustainability."
Dr. Loretta P. Mayer, SenesTech's co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer, added, "We are pleased with the reception we are receiving from the organic food industry of California. They are welcoming our commitment to provide them with a product that meets their need for an effective and sustainable solution in pest management that is consistent with their values."
