Aprehend® is composed of Beauveria bassiana fungal spores applied in a proprietary and patented formulation.
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.
