Bed bugs have become a major problem and they can make your life miserable. Now days you can bring them home from almost anywhere. Reports show where they are on trains, buses, planes, work, movie theaters, the mall and many more places.
So what should you do to protect yourself, family and home. The first step of the treatment process for bed bugs is covering your bedding in a cover that will stop bed bugs from getting in or out of your mattress.
Mattress covers prevent bed bugs from hiding in the mattress, a prime location for the bugs and difficult to treat. If a mattress is infested, cover it to contain the bed bugs which will start to die after 2 weeks. Purchase a mattress cover that is labeled specifically for bed bugs as covers designed only to reduce allergens may not stop bed bugs.
