  • All Natural
  • Non-Toxic
  • Only a Single Application needed to kill ALL bed bugs that come into contact with this bio-pesticide
  • Quarterly Treatments Protect Hotel Rooms Year Round

Aprehend® is composed of Beauveria bassiana fungal spores applied in a proprietary formulation (patent pending). Aprehend is sprayed strategically in narrow bands where bed bugs are known to walk; direct spray contact is not necessary. Bed bugs of all life stages, sex or feeding status are killed within four to ten days following short-term contact with a treated surface. The fungal spores germinate within 20 hours of contact and then penetrate the cuticle of the bed bug and colonize inside, resulting in death.

Extensive laboratory studies demonstrated that when bed bugs cross a treated surface, they pick up and carry fungal spores back to the harborage or nesting area. The spores are easily transferred to others in the colony, and all bed bugs that come into contact with the fungal spores die within four to ten days. This process of acquiring spores from a surface treated with Aprehend and transferring them to the colony is repeated each night until the population is eliminated. The spray residue remains effective for up to three months, so unlike chemical insecticides, only one application is required to treat an infestation.

Due to its excellent long-term activity, Aprehend® will provide three months protection from the establishment of bed bug infestations. A regular (quarterly) treatment with Aprehend offers hotels and motels the first and only effective method to protect against bed bugs and the associated law suits, loss of reputation and remediation costs associated with bed bug infestations.

Chemical resistance –
no problem for Aprehend®

Bed bug populations are becoming resistant to many of the commonly used chemical insecticides. These data show the efficacy of Aprehend against the resistant ‘Jersey City’ and ‘Campus Coutryard’ strains of bed bug in comparison to the chemical standard ‘Suspend SC.’
