How does Aprehend work? Beauveria is a natural, fungal disease of insects; it infects an insect by direct contact, and does not need to be eaten to initiate an infection. Aprehend contains the conidia of Beauveria; these microscopic “seeds” readily attach to the insect cuticle, or “skin.” Once attached, the conidia germinate and penetrate directly through the cuticle and gain access to the insect’s blood system. Once there, the fungus grows inside the insect, using the blood as a food source. Very soon, the insect becomes sick and dies from the fungal infection. In bed bugs, the process takes between three and seven days.

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, and costs less in the long run than attempting reactive treatments once bed bugs have become firmly established in a property.
