ConidioTec LLC has developed Aprehend®, an EPA registered, biopesticide with a non-toxic mode of action designed for the elimination and prevention of bed bugs. This ready-to-use formulation contains the spores of a fungal disease of bed bugs which can be used to control existing infestations, and as a quarterly treatment to prevent infestations. Unlike chemical treatments, Aprehend® requires only a single application and minimal resident preparation. Works for up to 3 months. The treatment is effective in killing nymphs and adults, as well as bed bug populations that have resistance to many of the commonly used chemical insecticides.
