Aprehend® is a Bio-Pesticide composed of Beauveria bassiana fungal spores applied in a proprietary formulation for the control of bed bugs.
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.
