Schools Teaching Parents about Bed Bug Prevention

Danbury bedbug prevention meetingBed bug infestations can be really scary for parents, who don’t always know how to best eliminate bed bugs. Bedbug.com was recently notified that the Danbury School System will be hosting a bed bug information forum this Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Danubury High School.

We are thrilled to hear that bed bug information is being distributed to parents in a preventative manner. Our mission at Bedbug.com is to prevent bed bugs from entering your home by providing entomologist tested bed bug mattress and luggage encasement products, specifically for children and families. We highly recommend that you encourage your child school administration to host similar bedbug forums to help reduce infestations in your neighborhood!

Why a bed bug mattress cover?

When looking for a mattress cover for my queen size bed, I kept being told to get bed bug covers for my entire family. These days it’s not enough to cover your mattress, instead you must fully encase all of your bedding in bed bug bags in order to prevent bed bugs or kill any bed bugs already trapped inside.

The more research I do on bed bugs and the more information I find out – from either people who have had first had experience unfortunately, or from bed bug videos and professionals, the more scary it is.

They spread faster than we realize, their cunning, and their bedroom smart. They stop at nothing to feast themselves at our expense, sucking our blood right out of us from under our noises.

The havoc they create is unimaginable unless you’ve been through it yourself. The money needed to be spent that you afford and the time it takes to get rid of them that you just don’t have drains you, physically and emotionally, it can literally drive people to insanity.

I heard from an entomologist that he has seen people get so desperate and pushed to the limit that they have resulted in covering their floors and sofa’s in diesel fuel; however this of course brings up other serious and dangerous problems.

My advise is that its defiantly better to leave it to the pest control professionals but what you can and should do weather you have had bed bugs or not, make sure that all the pillows, mattresses and box springs in your house are protected with bed bug covers. I even have a laundry bag that is bed bug proof; I’m not leaving anything up to chance!!


Living in a country with the most recently increasing bed bug reports and the majority of those being in New York State, I figured I’d go somewhere exotic like Hawaii for college. However the joke is on me now, ‘cos student housing in Honolulu has proven not to be much better.

Four months ago, I think it was a Sunday morning I woke up having had the worst nights sleep ever, I just assumed it was down to the few to many drinks I had at my friend’s birthday the night before. After being awake for less than 10 minutes and itching incessantly, I ran to the mirror, and proceeded to yell.

I ran to the Dr with a hoodie pulled so far down my face that it hid the bed bug bites but I could barely see where I was walking.

The Dr said that there wasn’t much he could do, I felt like I was in a living nightmare. I went home and searched the internet. The consensus I got was to hire a professional bed bug exterminator and purchase anti bedbug covers for my mattress and pillows to avoid another situation like this, I even purchased a anti bed bug laundry bag.

It’s ironic because even though I was escaping New York which is one of the most highly infested bed bug states in the U.S I ended up getting them in my student housing in Honolulu.

I am happy to report that 4 months have passed and although I’m still recovering, mentally, bed bug wise, I’m in the clear!
