Bed bugs are a common problem very few people know much about, if they are even aware the parasites exist. With the recent resurgence of bed bugs, it is imperative that people understand the effective methods of bed bugs protection to best protect themselves and their families. Though they are small and often go unseen, the presence of bed bugs and their effects on sleep, health and hygiene is obvious to those who have them. Early detection and bed bugs protection is the key to eradicating these pests from your home and life.
Bedding encasements are essential to bed bugs protection and management. Mattress encasements are especially useful in the prevention of bed bugs before an infestation even occurs. When you encase your mattress and box spring, you cut off the food source to the bed bugs in the mattress and box spring, which will eventually lead to their death. This does not eliminate the infestation, as bed bugs will breed anywhere in the house. However, it does make it much easier to spot bed bugs on the mattress when the look for a blood meal, which in turn makes eradication more painless. Also, mattress and box spring encasements help prevent the spread of bed bugs to other areas of the home. Mattress and box spring encasements are easy, cost-efficient and extremely effective methods of controlling, preventing and eliminating bed bugs. However, the encasements must be scientifically proven to work. If not, they will be ineffective.
