Efficacy

Most Effective Bed Bug Treatment

Only brief surface contact required

Unlike chemicals, which require bed bugs to remain in contact with the spray in order to absorb the toxins, Aprehend® requires only the briefest of encounters with the sprayed surface to be effective. This figure illustrates how bed bugs crossing just 2” of a sprayed surface die within 5 days. 

The necessity for only a quick bed bug interaction with a treated surface is a particularly effective feature of the Aprehend® natural bed bug treatment.

Aprehend® effective for 3 months

Due to their cryptic nature, bed bugs are extremely difficult to target by direct spray application. A simple online search will reveal tons of articles on how to find bed bugs.

A critical feature of any bed bug pesticide is the length of time that the spray residue remains effective. Our results show that Aprehend® is just as effective three months after application as it was the day after spraying.

A quarterly pro-active service can allow your business to offer “peace of mind” to your customers. Homeowners may find evidence of bed bugs for months without ever catching a glimpse of the creatures. Bed bugs hide away from humans, making it challenging to eliminate them from a home or other indoor space.

Fighting bed bugs therefore requires more finesse. Your pest management company needs a treatment that lasts a long time and that doesn’t necessarily have to be sprayed directly on the insects themselves.

Chemical resistance – no problem for Aprehend®

Bed bug populations are becoming resistant to many of the most commonly used chemical insecticides. These data show the efficacy of Aprehend® against the resistant ‘Jersey City’ and ‘Campus Courtyard’ strains of bed bugs in comparison to the chemical standard ‘Suspend SC.’

As time goes on, the market presence of products such as Aprehend® will become even more important. We already know that the common bed bug has shown substantial resistance to deltamethrin, a widely used insecticide. Additionally, studies have shown that certain bed bug populations are moderately resistant to two other common insecticides, bifenthrin and chlorfenapyr.

The general wisdom among pest management professionals is that the longer one uses chemical insecticides on bed bugs, the more resistant those populations will eventually become.

We see evidence of this chemical resistance in bed bugs when large cities report surges in their bed bug populations. Major cities are more likely to have bed bug infestations because of the sheer number of people passing through them every day, staying in hotels and generally moving around.

To combat such issues, pest companies know they must work to eliminate bed bugs by combining traditional insecticides with non-chemical products or the heat method.

Given that reality, Aprehend® is the clear choice when it comes to bed bug treatments that the insects can’t resist.
