Fighting back against the nasty bed bug
Recent news reports have cited the growing concern about bed bugs. Although the tiny blood sucking parasite has been around for a very long time, their infestation has increased over the past several years due to certain factors such as international travel, immigration, pest control changes and resistance to certain insecticides.
Bed bugs commonly hide in mattresses, wooden bed frames, headboards, carpets, and walls. Bed bugs, which resemble ticks, are easy to see, if you look at the right time, mainly at night around 4 am. During the day they are hiding in the dark, usually around the bed, where people spend the night.
There is no effective repellent against bed bugs, so avoidance is the best protection. Pesticide sprays are not recommended for use on bedding. A more effective method is to encase the mattress, box spring and pillows in covers similar to those used against dust mite allergies.
Mattress World carries the Ultimate Bed Bug Protection Kit for your mattress, box spring and pillows to “lock those bed bugs in or keep them out.” Along with preventing bed bug entry, escape and bites the kit also provides a barrier for dust mites and protection from bed wetting, pet stains and allergens.
