While some people place their mattresses and pillows out in the sun as a means of stopping bed bugs, the practice is largely insufficient in preventing an infestation. On the other hand, protective covers for the pillow and mattress of every bed in the house will not only control any parasites that have already infested the house but also prevent further growth of the epidemic.
A variety of protective covers is available for bed bug control. The most effective solution is a zippered encasement that is especially designed to control and prevent the infestation.
Infestation is predicted to increase year after year. Used furniture and increased foreign travel are some of the top reasons for the spread of bed bugs and other pests. One common misconception is that pests will only infest unkempt homes. Bed bugs can appear anywhere they find a food source, including the tidiest homes.
The other problem with pest infestation is that the further the treatment is delayed, the more expensive it gets to tackle the situation. For this reason, most bed bug control experts recommend preventative measures, such as mattress covers as the most effective way of controlling the solution.
