How Aprehend Works
When bed bugs cross Aprehend, they carry the fungal spores back to their harborage areas, transferring to the whole colony. Within 20 hours of contact with the bed bug, the fungal spores germinate. It penetrates the cuticle of the bed bug and colonize inside the bed bug, killing the bed bug. When bed bugs of all life stages, sex or feeding status come in contact with Aprehend, they die within 4-10 days.
