Andermatt partners with ConidioTec to launch a novel B. bassiana bed bug product in Europe
We are very excited to announce that we partner with CondioTec LLC (USA) to introduce the Aprehend® biopesticide for the control and prevention of bed bugs into the European market. Aprehend is a fungal biopesticide based on an oil formulation of Beauveria bassiana, a natural fungal disease of insects. It is formulated to ensure long-term residual efficacy. Bed bugs only need to contact the treated surface briefly to pick up the spores and become infected. Exposed bed bugs also take the spores back to their hidden harborages, infecting other bed bugs in the population. Andermatt Biocontrol Suisse will formulate Aprehend with a highly effective B. bassiana strain of the South African sister company Andermatt PHP and will undertake biocide registration for the EU.
