Pest of the Month - Sponsored by Aprehend

Bed bugs present several challenges to pest professionals: resistance, hidden harborages, a lack of client prep and cooperation or reintroduction that creates callbacks, and complicated, time-consuming protocols. Aprehend tackles all of these challenges by capitalizing on bed bug biology. Since we know that bed bugs must take a blood meal to move from one life stage to the next, PMPs apply strategic Aprehend barriers in places we know bed bugs will walk in search of this necessary bloodmeal. They pick up the spores and take them back to the harborage. The spores transfer easily to other bed bugs by direct contact, reaching the bugs you can’t see. After picking up the Aprehend spores, a bed bug dies within 3-7 days.
Aprehend requires minimal prep, applies fast, and most infestations are conquered in one treatment -- saving PMPs time and money. And, its residual lasts up to three months, making it ideal for quarterly servicing, multi-unit housing, and community environments. Aprehend is a biopesticide with no known resistance, uses a non-toxic mode of action, and is registered for use in all 50 states and Canada.
