Bed bugs exist in cities across the country and around the world. The problem is so common that you’ll hear reports on the news of epidemics sweeping parts of the Midwest and both coasts.
I don’t know about you, but the mere thought of bed bugs just about sends me over the edge. Silly as it may sound, I won’t even visit the library to check out books because I know a lot of libraries have had problems with bed bugs in their books. Likewise, hotels, apartments, and luggage on planes.
The bugs are so small that you might not even know you have a problem until you see dark brown spots on your mattress and box spring. Those dark spots are the blood that the bugs leave behind after feeding on you and your family.
With mattress encasement products, you can finally get rid of your bed bug problem once and for all.
The reason that getting rid of beg bugs is so hard is because those bugs live inside your mattress and box springs. These bugs usually only come out at night and feed on you as you sleep.
An encasement is a large piece of lightweight fabric that completely surrounds your mattress. It lacks any areas that let bed bugs escape.
Bed bugs can only live for a certain period of time without feeding. When you keep them away from your blood, the bugs will eventually die.
Many people worry that using an encasement on their beds will change the way they sleep. This isn’t something that you need to worry about.
Made from a type of polyester, the mattress covers are just as soft as your mattress. The fabric is also lightweight and breathable, which means that you will feel just as soft and comfortable as you did before you used that encasement.
Whether you use sheets made from cotton, flannel, silk, satin or another material, you can sleep soundly without worrying about your sheets slipping off the encasement and off your bed.
You absolutely can use a mattress encasement with other products designed to kill bed bugs. If you leave your box spring uncovered, bed bugs living in the box spring can continue feeding on you.
A cover designed for your box spring will quickly take care of this problem.
You can also find pillow covers that will suffocate the bed bugs living in your pillows and luggage liners. Luggage liners keep bed bugs from crawling inside of your bags and coming home with you.
