Mattress Safe® mattress and box spring encasements:
Protect and Salvage Your Expensive Investment In Bedding. A minimal investment in our mattress encasements can prevent the loss in the heavy cost to replace this value.
Address Early Detection of Infestation. By applying our mattress and box spring encasements before any signs of infestation, you will minimize the available areas to nest and lay eggs as well as provide the means for an easy detection of the presence of bed bugs.
Prevent Initial Infestation In Mattress and Box Springs. At least 70% of bed bugs colonize the mattress and infrastructure of the box springs. If there is an infestation, our encasement eliminates the opportunity for bed bugs to find a home.
According to statistics from the National Pest Management Association, bed bugs are on the rise all over the world, having increased 500 percent over the last three years in the U.S. alone. Pest control professionals report infestations in hotels, multi-family housing, apartments, and hospitals. Although mostly eradicated in the U.S. around World War II, the current resurgence is attributed to an increase in international travel and immigration combined with less frequent use of strong pest-killing products.
The Cimex lectularius, more commonly known as the bed bug, prefers to live and feed in the beds of humans. They hitch rides on luggage, backpacks, shoes, or any other mobile material. One may find them hiding in small cracks and crevices in human environments including along mattress seams, within box springs, bedsheets, nightstands, headboards, upholstered furniture, lamps, picture frames and luggage. They also frequent unexpected places like inside telephones or light fixtures, behind electrical switch plates, under carpet edges, along baseboards, and within folds of draperies or wallpaper. Bed bugs quickly move from one bed to another and prove especially difficult to control in apartments, dorms, or buildings with a large number of beds. Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can become red, itchy welts.
Bed Bug Prevention Tips*:
Vacuum suitcases after returning from a vacation (be sure to discard vacuum bag in a sealed container).
Check your bed sheets and along the seams of the mattress for tell-tale fecal matter, resembling tiny blood spots.
Consider bringing a large plastic trash bag to keep your suitcase in during hotel stays.
Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspections.
Call pest control professionals immediately to address an infestation, as bed bugs are elusive creatures and difficult to control.
