Aprehend® Is A Natural Biopesticide​

Bed bugs can easily and quickly infest your property, turning your living space into their home and breeding haven. These tiny creatures have become resistant to various removal treatments and can reinfest your home if neglected. Fortunately, these pests do not carry or cause diseases but can leave you with itchy, red rashes and sleepless nights.

​At Bug Heat Terminator, we offer Aprehend Bed Bug Treatment, an eco-friendly and effective alternative that is a game-changer in the battle against these blood-sucking insects.

Aprehend bed bug treatment

WHAT IS APREHEND BED BUG TREATMENT?

Developed by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Aprehend® is a fungal-based biopesticide that targets bed bugs effectively. This method uses a specific strain of the fungus Beauveria bassiana, which infects and kills bed bugs.

How does it work?

This oil-based spray is applied as a barrier on the walking path of the bed bugs. When these pests cross the barrier, the fungus spores stick to the bed bugs’ exterior, germinate, and penetrate their body, eventually causing death.

Any bed bugs that encounter this biopesticide die within 4 to 10 days. Additionally, when bed bugs carrying these fungal spores return to their hiding places, they will infect the other bed bugs in the colony, leading to their death.

I noticed ants on our first floor, (we don't have a basement so the first floor leads directly out to the backyard), and I started stressing out as we haven't had them for two years. I have never done any professional treatments, I've always done cinnamon and raid and it's never worked for a long time. After doing enough research and reading all the reviews I was set on using Bugs Heat Terminator! Priestley did such a great job with our space! He went over what the protocol was, what to expect and how to keep up with it over the next coming days. It has officially been four days and I have not noticed any ants!! Maria was very knowledgeable and professional in regards to the booking, answering any and all questions that I had, and making sure that I had a preparation care sheet, (such as what to move, what the terminators will be taking care of, and what we should do after the spray). I am so happy that I can enjoy our space again! Thank you🙂

THE PROCESS OF TREATMENT

The Aprehend® treatment involves the following steps to ensure best results:

1. Inspection

A team of professionals conducts a thorough inspection to identify the extent of the infestation and locate bed bug hotspots.

2. Preparaction

Before treatment, the affected area must be prepared, which includes decluttering, vacuuming, and sealing cracks, and crevices.

3. Application

Trained professionals apply Aprehend® to strategic areas, ensuring proper coverage of hiding areas and potential bed bug pathways.

4. Follow-Up

Regular follow-up visits are necessary to assess treatment effectiveness and make necessary adjustments. ​

PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR APREHEND® TREATMENT

Proper preparation plays a crucial role in faster and more effective bed bug elimination:

  • ​De-clutter the affected area.
  • Remove all your clothing items from the floor and cabinets, wash them in the hottest possible water cycle, dry these clothes at high heat, place them in a large bin bag and seal the bag at the top.
  • Vacuum the entire area, including carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture and pay special attention to these pests’ hiding spots like cracks, crevices, and seams.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter if possible.
  • Be sure to empty the vacuum bag or canister into a sealed plastic bag and dispose of it outdoors.
  • Use soap and water to clean and disinfect. This helps keep the product present for direct bed bugs contact.
  • Do not use chemical cleaning products, as they may interfere with the effectiveness of the biopesticide. (Lysol, Pinesol, Mr.Clean, bleach, etc.)
  • Seal any cracks and crevices in walls, baseboards, and furniture using caulk or sealant. In this way, bed bugs cannot escape or find new hiding spots during treatment.
  • Move furniture away from walls and other objects, creating easy access for pest control professionals, and allowing them to apply the biopesticide to potential hiding spots more effectively.
  • All residents and pets must vacate the home or business establishment during the application until four hours after the application. While Aprehend® is considered safe for humans and pets, it is best to avoid unnecessary exposure.
  • Follow the guidance provided by the pest control professionals from Bed Bug Heat Terminator.
