Bed Bug Biopesticide Spray Treatment in New York City, Long Island & Westchester County, NY

Aprehend™ is a new product which Standard Pest Management has begun using which Contains fungal spores that are sprayed in an oil formulation and are applied strategically in a ‘band’ like pattern. This band that our Bed Bug experts will create acts as a barrier. For most common scenarios, it acts as a barrier around the box spring of your bed. Our Bed Bug exterminators are trained to spray Aprehend™ in a very precise, deliberate manner. We say “deliberate” because we’re counting on the behavior of Bed Bugs as they travel throughout the twilight hours.

How the Bed Bug Spray Truly Begins to Work…

In order to reach the top or bottom of the mattress, they’ll be forced to unknowingly walk through this barrier made up of billions of fungal spores which then begin to stick to the Bed Bug’s feet. Trust us when we tell you that it will stick much in the same way tape will stick to paper. The Bed Bug will then proceed on traveling back to wherever it and the rest of it’s infestation are hiding out. Since the spores have travelled with it, all of the other remaining bed bugs that make contact will get stuck with some of these spores.

24 Hours is All It Takes to Permanently Disrupt a Bed Bug Infestation

Within 24 hours of Apprehend’s spores making contact with a Bed Bug’s body, they’ll begin to germinate thus entering their blood stream. Any Bed Bug that makes contact with that spore barrier which we’ve sprayed or a Bed Bug infected with spores will die within four to seven days after transmission. This is an exciting, revolutionary new method for exterminating Bed Bugs without the need for thermal remediation.

As you’ve read, it’s exceedingly useful because it will reach nearly every single nook, cranny or hiding spot our technicians may not have access to such as, behind an electrical outlet, behind walls, within ceilings, drawers, or under the rug.

Bed Bugs Are No Longer Safe ANYWHERE in New York City, Westchester County or Long Island, NY

What we’re trying to say here is that with our new Strategic Application Spray Treatment, Bed Bugs are no longer safe anywhere. Our Bed Bug Technicians will assess any infested rooms you may have in your house and make a decision as to the amount of spraying to apply. Our most common application is to spray in narrow 2” band barriers along your box spring. However, based on where we may see an infestation’s origin, we may opt to spray in either a different place entirely or in addition to your box spring.
