Enhancing Resident Safety: Bed Bug Prevention with Aprehend® in Assisted Living

In the realm of assisted living, the well-being and comfort of residents are of paramount importance. These facilities not only serve as homes but also as spaces of care and community for the elderly. Recognizing the unique challenges these environments face, Level Up Pest Control presents Aprehend®, an innovative solution tailored for effective bed bug management in assisted living facilities.


Understanding the Impact of Bed Bugs in Assisted Living: Bed bugs can be a significant issue in communal living spaces like assisted living facilities. These pests not only pose a physical health risk but can also affect the mental well-being of residents. With the elderly being more susceptible to the effects of bed bug bites and the stress associated with infestations, managing these pests is crucial.


The Role of Aprehend® in Assisted Living: Aprehend® represents a breakthrough in bed bug control, offering a strategic solution that aligns with the sensitive nature of assisted living environments.

  • Key Application Areas:

    • Individual Apartments: Aprehend® is applied in areas such as bedrooms and living spaces, focusing on furniture, bed frames, and other potential bed bug hotspots.

    • Common Rooms and Shared Facilities: Community areas like lounges, dining halls, and activity centers are treated to prevent the spread of bed bugs through social interaction and shared usage of spaces.

    • Furniture and Upholstery: Special attention is given to furniture, as it often harbors bed bugs. Aprehend® is used to treat sofas, chairs, and other upholstered items regularly.


  • Advantages of Aprehend® in Assisted Living:

    • Long-Lasting Protection: Aprehend® offers a residual effect that provides protection against bed bugs for up to three months, reducing the need for frequent treatments.

    • Safety for Residents: The product is designed to be safe around the elderly, ensuring that the health and safety of residents are not compromised.

    • Non-Disruptive Application: The treatment process is quick and non-intrusive, ensuring that residents' daily routines are not disturbed.


The Importance of Regular Monitoring and Education: Alongside the application of Aprehend®, regular monitoring for bed bugs is vital. Training staff to recognize early signs of infestations and educating residents and their families about preventive measures are integral components of a comprehensive bed bug management strategy.


Conclusion: Implementing Aprehend® in assisted living facilities is more than just pest control; it's about ensuring a dignified and comfortable living environment for the elderly. With its long-lasting protection and safety profile, Aprehend® ensures that these facilities remain sanctuaries for their residents, free from the distress of bed bugs.
