How does Aprehend work?
Aprehend is a revolutionary fungal biopesticide for the elimination and prevention of bed bugs. Strategic barriers are applied in critical areas where bed bugs are known to thrive after introduction.
When bugs cross the barrier, they pick up Aprehend spores and die of the fungal disease in 3 – 7 days.
This prevents the establishment of a bed bug infestation, and the barriers continue to protect for up to 3 months.
Are bed bugs found only in “dirty” places?
Public perception is that bed bugs are indicators of dirt or lack of hygiene. But, bed bugs are just as happy to establish an infestation in a meticulously clean property as they are in a dirty place.
Their only association is with people, as they feed exclusively on blood and require the presence of a warmblooded host to complete their life cycle.
Bed bugs are opportunistic hitchhikers and are easily carried in or on bags and clothing by people who live in infested properties. Bed bug introductions cannot be avoided, but infestations can.
Don’t let the risk of bed bug introductions tarnish your good reputation or affect your bottom line.
We had a woman come in with bedbugs once. They wore more PPE going into that room than with COVID-19 patients. It was wild. I was nowhere near the inside of that room but still, I felt itchy for the rest of the day.— Melissa Reed (@MelissaAReed) November 17, 2020
Aprehend is ideal for proactive treatments:
- Up to 3-month residual
- High effectiveness, proven in the field
- Requires minimal preparation
- EPA-registered, non-toxic mode of action
- No chemical resistance by bed bugs
- Fast application
- Available in all 50 states and Canada
As opportunistic hitchhikers they are easily carried on bags and clothing. It’s impossible for any facility that welcomes the general public to prevent the introduction of bed bugs.
Their ability to hide in minute cracks and crevices make early detection extremely difficult even by the most meticulous housekeepers.
Properties and community environments that will benefit from Aprehend Proactive Treatment:
- Multi-unit housing
- Rental properties
- Hotels, vacation homes, and rentals
- Doctor’s offices and medical waiting rooms
- Long-term-care facilities
- Movie theatres
Enter Aprehend, a natural fungal disease of insects that was developed specifically to control bed bugs.
The long-lasting residual action of Aprehend remains active for up to 3 months. It ensures that any bed bugs introduced will pick up the spores and die before establishing an infestation.
Proactive treatment with Aprehend® is applied only to the key areas where bed bugs are known to harbor when introduced into an environment.
The application of a quarterly pro-active treatment is far less costly and time-consuming than treatment of active infestations once bed bugs have become firmly established in a property.
Lost revenue, down-time, and closures for treatment, and the negative publicity that results from infestations can be avoided.
Owners and managers of any private or public environment at risk of bed bug introduction and establishment can safeguard property and people from infestation. Enjoy the peace of mind that only protection with Aprehend treatment provides.
