As travel continues to normalize, more and more people are taking trips within Canada and abroad. This can increase the possibility of bringing bed bugs back with you. Don’t let bed bugs sneak their way into your business. Not isolated to hotel rooms, these persistent pests can show up in every type of commercial setting, including; waiting rooms, hospitals, movie theatres, factories and airplanes. Bed bugs can, and will, live anywhere — and will ultimately affect your bottom line.
Introducing Orkin Canada’s Proactive Bed Bug Solution
Staying proactive will help your business win the bed bug fight. As part of our customized bed bug programs Orkin Canada uses Aprehend®, an all-natural treatment that helps prevent and eliminate bed bug infestations.
A proprietary and patented formula, this natural biopesticide solution is a combination of oils that delivers Beauveria conidia (spores) to surfaces where they remain attached until encountered by a bed bug. Beauveria is a natural process that infects eggs and adult bed bugs by direct contact.
Benefits of Orkin Canada’s Proactive Bed Bug Solution
Aprehend® is a unique, ready-to-use formula with spray parameters that remain active for up to three months. This means that any bed bug crossing an Aprehend® barrier – even 12 weeks after treatment will be affected.
In addition to being registered for use by Health Canada, the Aprehend® solution is non-toxic and contains no chemicals, odour or dilution.
Minimal preparation is required
Regular inspections and treatments can catch bed bug introductions before they become a bigger problem. Use Aprehend® as a stand-alone treatment or as part of any pest control protocol.
How Does Orkin Canada’s Proactive Solution Work?
The application of the product is both easy and safe, only being applied in low contact areas to maintain the residual properties of Aprehend®. The application process follows four simple steps:
The product is applied strategically in critical areas where bed bugs may gather after introduction.
When bed bugs come into contact with an Aprehend® treated surface, the fungal spores stick to its feet and body and travel back to the harbourage area.
The spores transfer easily between bed bugs by direct contact, targeting bed bugs that do not leave the harbourage area as well. Since bed bugs live packed tightly, the fungal disease quickly spreads in the population.
Bed bugs die of the fungal disease in 3–7 days. Aprehend® barrier areas should not be disturbed or applied to areas with frequent human contact or sunlight. Do not clean the applied areas until the bed bug infestation has been eradicated.
