Aprehend is an ideal tool for multi-unit, hospitality and community properties implementing a proactive bed bug service. As opportunistic hitchhikers, bed bugs are easily carried on bags and clothing. It’s essentially impossible for any facility that welcomes the public to prevent the introduction of bed bugs. Their ability to hide in minute cracks and crevices makes early detection extremely difficult, even by the most meticulous housekeepers. However, the long-lasting residual action of Aprehend remains active for up to three months, and ensures that any bed bugs introduced will pick up the spores and die before establishing an infestation. A quarterly proactive contract provides property managers with peace of mind, the company says, and costs less in the long run than attempting reactive treatments once bed bugs have become firmly established in a property.
