Bed Bug covers are a solution to preventing bedbug bites and preventing the bugs from entering or leaving the mattress.
How a Bedbug Infestation Begins
Bedbugs usually come into a property by hitching a ride on used furniture, used mattresses, luggage, or clothing. No building is immune to bedbugs. This means that public places such as movie theaters and hotels may have bedbugs, which can be transferred to residences by getting into luggage or attaching to clothing. The bugs hide during the day and often go unnoticed until they begin causing problems.
Signs of Infestation
One of the first clues to a bedbug infestation is itchy bites. These bites are red and long lasting, and they can be anywhere on the body, but they tend to occur in groups of bites rather than a single bite. Another sign of bedbugs is spots of dried blood, which may be visible on sheets, pillowcases, bedding or mattresses. These pests also produce a musty odor, but this often goes unnoticed.
Sighting the bugs is rare, but upon inspecting seams of mattresses or shaking out bedding onto a white sheet, the small, flat bugs may appear.
The bedbug problem does not show signs of cessation in the near future. To avoid bedbugs in hospitality properties, it is wise to take proactive measures to prevent infestations, rather than wait until bedbugs arrive. Bedbug elimination is a time-consuming process due to their ability to proliferate very quickly and their ability to lie hidden in areas that are difficult to reach with pesticides. Calling on professionals for bedbug extermination is usually the best option. Bed Bug covers and pillow protectors are also an important part of the prevention or elimination of bedbugs. They also, very importantly, help prevent sleepers from being bitten by the pests while staying at your property.
