Allergy Covers Work For Bed Bugs Too
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 bed bug 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 on infestation.
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!
