a unique approach to address its ongoing rat problem, which has gotten even worse since the pandemic started. the city's recreation and parks department is using what many people refer to as rat birth control. the liquid contraceptive is put out in city parks, and it is helping to control the rat population in many cases, i talked earlier with tambora barrack abberton from the city's record parks department about this strategy. all right. well hopefully we will hear from tambora shortly, but i can tell you that the rat birth control is being used in parks around san francisco, and it's called contra pest. it was created by a company in arizona called cnn's tech and the company's chief strategy. officer. nicole simpson told me earlier today that this formula contains two active ingredients that help to disrupt the ability of rats to reproduce. we
4:14 pm
describe it as a bit of a milkshake for rats. they love the stuff. it's sweet. it's got lots of fats in it. so this the mixture itself is very tasty to the rats. and rats actually have to consume a very high percent of their body weight in liquids every day, so it also makes our bait particularly good when there's a lot of food source around for the rats because they'll actually go to the contra past because they need to consume liquid. so that also helps us in terms of getting uptake with the counterparts. so essentially, if the rats are drinking it, you know if they come in, and they have some sips of it, and they keep coming back a little bit, they're going to start seeing the effects right away, so it will gradually start to impact. so the more they drink. the more you going to rip. their plane. exactly you know how this how this formula came to be. and how was it that that someone with your company
4:15 pm
figured out that this was an effective way to control the reproduction of rats? sure so we actually have a really cool story and how we began. there were two women, female scientists, and they were actually trying to figure out how to create menopause in rats so that they could sell them or mice so they could sell them to drug companies to do testing for menopausal drugs. and so once they kind of figured that out, it occurred to them that well, if we can, if we can get these mice to stop being able to reproduce, wouldn't it be brilliant if we could turn this into a way to control rodent populations, and so they pivoted at that point and started working towards what is today contrast so again, this product contrast is being used in various parks around san francisco as they see the rat populations sort of rise in particular parks. then they distribute this contra passed and i spoke earlier with a representative from the city's record parks department about how they're using this rat
4:16 pm
contraceptive as one tool. in their arsenal to control the red population. it is a sweet liquid , and we put the bait into, um bait boxes, big plastic rat traps, and but they aren't trapped in there. they just go in there, and it is a sweet liquid and they will eat it if there isn't any other delicious food around renders them sterile for a year, which is great, because that's the average lifespan of a rap in the wild. and you are using this in conjunction with a number of other other tools to try to try to control the rat population using this product with with the other methods that you have. are you starting to see results and seeing the rat population in the parks come down. we are seeing good results. there's no magic bullet. when it comes to controlling the rat population. it's a combination of things.
4:17 pm
vegetation management, um, trash management. communications between our gardeners and are custodians old fashioned snap traps night trapping and, finally, yes, birth control. and the company says contrast is not harmful to rats or other animals higher up the food chain that might eat the rats. it's being been used in san francisco since 2019 in the rec and parks department says it has seen fewer rats in those parks where the liquid contraceptive has been deployed. we have an alert now. for people with allergies, pollen counts are on the rise. some allergy experts say pollen counts are roughly 10% higher than normal. they say it's partly due to pine trees pollinating earlier this year. birch and oak trees also may peek at slightly different times . the peak allergy season depends on where you live and warmer areas such as northern california towards the central valley and the east bay tend to peak more quickly. some doctors
