Now registered for professionals in 49 states and the District of Columbia, Aprehend is a non-toxic, fungal biopesticide for the elimination and prevention of bed bugs. Aprehend offers a single, long-lasting application, sprayed as barriers in areas where bed bugs walk. When bed bugs cross the barrier, the spores stick to the body of the bug and are taken back to the harborage, where they are spread among the bed bug population. Bed bugs that come into contact with the fungal spores will become infected and die within four to seven days. In this way, Aprehend targets bed bugs both in and outside of their harborages in a single application. The spray maintains effective control for up to three months and can be used to eliminate and prevent the establishment of bed bug populations in single-family homes, apartment complexes, assisted-living, hotels and commercial spaces.
