Bedbugs Aprehend

I want to thank Brian Metzger GP Home Defense from Salina, Kansas for the pictures. (

Natural Biopesticide
Aprehend® is composed of Beauveria bassiana fungal spores applied in a proprietary formulation (patent pending). Aprehend® is sprayed strategically in narrow bands where bed bugs are known to walk; direct spray contact is not necessary. Bed bugs of all life stages, sex or feeding status are killed within four to ten days following short-term contact with a treated surface. The fungal spores germinate within 20 hours of contact and then penetrate the cuticle of the bed bug and colonize inside, resulting in death.

Control Treatment
Extensive laboratory studies demonstrated that when bed bugs cross a treated surface, they pick up and carry fungal spores back to the harborage or nesting area. The spores are easily transferred to others in the colony, and all bed bugs that come into contact with the fungal spores die within four to ten days. This process of acquiring spores from a surface treated with Aprehend® and transferring them to the colony is repeated each night until the population is eliminated. The spray residue remains effective for up to three months, so unlike chemical insecticides, only one application is required to treat an infestation.

Another game changer and is new technology to help on those cases of Bed Bugs Aprehend. Fungal spores and requires only the briefest of contact, we have been using it for some time and the results are good. We started with steam but you must have direct contact, along with spray which again does provide some killing factors later as they come in contact. These spores can remain active for up to 3 months providing a residual effect.
