Antifertility agents in vertebrate pest control
- Author(s): Balser, Donald S.
- et al.
The current status of research into potential antifertility agents for vertebrate pests is briefly discussed, noting that the most promising target species are those than breed only once per year. Advantages of suppressed reproduction are listed. Current efforts to develop an antifertility agent for the coyote are described, including an initial field trial of diethylstilbestrol conducted in New Mexico using tallow drop baits.
