Welcome to the website for the Vertebrate Pest Control Research Advisory Committee, or VPCRAC for short. This site is the information outlet for VPCRAC and provides users with information regarding the mission and research of VPCRAC.
VPCRAC research projects investigate effective and economical alternative materials for the control of vertebrate pests. We solicit and consider research proposals for alternative humane methods of control, and continue the state's current vertebrate pest control product registrations until such time as effective alternative products are available.
This research is for the development of scientific data required to maintain registrations. VPCRAC cooperates with the US Department of Agriculture in funding research programs to maintain, develop, and register vertebrate pest control materials used in California.
