Aprehend® case study – Effective pairing with heat treatment

This new case study describes the effective pairing of Aprehend® with heat treatments to offer competitive solutions in price-sensitive markets. With an increased presence of (often unlicensed) heat treatment operators offering cheaper, but less thorough bed bug treatments, Bug Bakers™ (Columbus, OH) was looking for alternative approaches in their market.

Bug Bakers™ evaluated Aprehend® and established a treatment protocol that enabled them to offer an effective alternative to heat treatment at 75% of the heat treatment cost.  Customers welcomed the lower cost, chemical free approach.  Bug Bakers™ are now using their heat rig about 50% of the time, while Aprehend® treatments represent 40% of their bed bug jobs, with pesticides at 10%.

By offering Aprehend® as an alternative or an add-on service to heat, Bug Bakers™ has experienced a 10-15 % increase in profits.

Aprehend® case study - Mobile Home treatment in Oklahoma

This new case study describes the eradication of bed bugs from a single family mobile home in Oklahoma, using Aprehend®.   The homeowners had been treating their home using pesticide products that were available from their local stores or on-line.  The bugs always seemed to “come back.”  Significant bed bug activity was found during the inspection, with bed bugs visible crawling on the walls and ceiling

Triple B Pest Solutions (Poteau, OK) took the contract and conducted Aprehend® treatments in the bedrooms, living area, and bathroom.  They estimate that remediation using traditional chemical applications would have required a total of 4-6 treatments, using a range of chemicals to ensure that pesticide resistant bugs were properly dealt with.  Visual inspection 2 weeks after the initial treatment indicated no live bed bug activity in any location.

No reports of ongoing activity have been received more than 3 months after the initial treatment.

Aprehend® case study - Tennessee apartment complex

This new case study describes the eradication of bed bugs from a 32-unit complex in Tennessee, using Aprehend®, Cimexa™ and encasements.  Property management had been battling bed bugs for over 6 years with no success. Over 50% of the apartments showed visual signs of infestation, with two apartments being classified as highly infested and cluttered.

HTP Termite and Pest Control (Huntingdon, TN), took on the contract and conducted treatments in all 32 apartments.  The treatments took 2 days to complete, using 4 technicians.  The majority (27) of the apartments were treated only once and 5 apartments (including the two badly infested apartments) received a second application 30 days later.  Visual inspection 60 days after the initial treatment indicated no live bed bug activity in any apartment.

No reports of ongoing activity have been received as of 6 months after the initial treatment.

Summer is coming... how to handle Aprehend® as the temperature rises

As things start to heat up during the summer months, the care and use of a biological-based product such as Aprehend® can be a little different than the chemical pesticides you're used to storing in the back of your service vehicle.

Even here in Pennsylvania, we've measured temperatures inside a vehicle ranging from 48-112F in June and July.  The temperatures at the upper end can have a negative effect on product lifetime if you're not careful.

Find out how to properly store and travel with Aprehend® for maximum lifetime and efficacy by reading this new guide:

PMPs across the country have been getting outstanding results by adding Aprehend® to their bed bug treatment protocol.  Whether it’s as a stand-alone treatment, alongside other products (ex. Dust products, Crossfire® or Bedlam® on cushions), or after a heat treatment to take advantage of the 3-month residual, Aprehend® is causing a “massive die-off of bedbugs.”
