Allergy Covers Help Keep The Bed Bugs Out
Bed bugs have become a rampant problem across the
country. Listen to almost any local newscast and you’ll hear a story about these
insects wreaking havoc. It used to be that the mention of bed bugs conjured
images of seedy hotels or poor slums, but now the tenacious pests are literally
everywhere. Fortunately, there are ways to fight them if you recognize the
problem and strike early enough.
The reason these pests are so hard to control is that they are small and can
multiply fairly rapidly. That means a bed, room or entire house can become
infested in a relatively short amount of time. One way to prevent this from
happening is by using
mattress covers on your mattresses, pillows and box springs. This way you
can stop an infestation before it even starts.
They may seem small and inconsequential, but bed bugs present a real threat.
That’s because they feed on the blood of animals and humans. In order to feed,
which they do late at night, they need to find a place to live that has a ready
food source. In most cases, that place is a bed, hence their name. But they can
also take up residence in tiny cracks in furniture, walls or molding.
Of course, their favorite place to live is mattresses, box springs and bed
frames. Once they find a spot that works, they will come out at night and feed,
leaving their victims with lots of tiny bites or other even allergic reactions.
When these bites are scratched, there is a danger of them becoming infected.
Quality bed bug covers can help to avoid this eventuality by putting the brakes
Because they are so small, it may be impossible to notice the presence of bed
bugs until they are found in large numbers. For this reason, it is important to
do everything you can to prevent infestation at its source. Fortunately, this is
fairly easy with the use of covers that include a special membrane designed to
keep out insects.
Simply slip one of these bed bug covers onto your mattress and zip it shut and
any bed bugs that already exist there will be trapped and killed while new ones
are kept out. Before using one of these covers, you want to make sure your
mattress is thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed to remove as many of the bugs as
possible. Then apply the cover and you’ll be able to rest easy knowing your bed
is infestation free.
This is the only proven way to keep bed bugs out of your bed. Standard
insecticides and pesticides are not safe to use on beds so that should never be
attempted. Instead, you want to wash your bedding regularly in hot water to kill
off any bugs present and use allergy covers to keep your mattress and box spring
fresh and clean.
Nobody likes to consider the problem of bed bugs, but it is a real concern for
many in all walks of life. Don’t let this nasty pest get the better of you,
fight back with allergy relief products including mattress covers so you can
sleep tight and wake without a bite!
