Effects of an Anti-Fertility Product on Reproductive Structures of Common Vole Males and Residues of Compounds

2024-07-16T13:39:26+00:00Tags: , |

Simple Summary: Bait-based fertility control could contribute to rodent pest management. Bait
containing 4-vinylcyclohexene diepoxide (VCD) and triptolide (TP), registered as ContraPest®, was
delivered to male common voles to assess the effects on reproductive structures and residues in
the liver and testes. There were no effects or inconclusive effects for most reproductive parameters
considered. However, there was an increase in sperm defects in voles treated for 14/28 days and
fewer normal sperm cells in voles treated for 28 days. There were no TP residues in the testes, few
and low TP residues and no VCD residues in the liver tissue. Treatments with VCD + TP seemed to
have minor effects on male reproductive organs.
