A Natural Biopesticide for the Elimination and Prevention of Bed Bugs Aprehend® is a professional grade product available to licensed pest control operators.
Aprehend® is a patented formula composed of Beauveria bassiana fungal spores applied lightly and strategically to where bed bugs travel. The spores germinate within 20 hours of coming into contact with a bed bug, penetrates its outer waxy cuticle, and colonises its body in the same way other fungi attack plants. Death occurs anywhere from four to ten days after short-term contact.
Those 20 hours after first contact are key to this bio-pesticide’s efficacy. When a bed bug carrying fungal spores returns to the harbourage, or nesting area, the spores are then transferred to other bed bugs in all stages of life–egg, nymph, and adult–and spread throughout the colony. Each night when bed bugs come out to feed, the process repeats until the entire colony is eradicated.
One proper application of Aprehend® will last up to three months. Not only does it eradicate existing bed bug infestations, it prevents the formation of new colonies–where bed bugs go, the spores go with them.
