It’s important tio stay hygenic preventing bed bugs, dust mites, mold, and other bio-fluids. It’s no wonder that Goodwill Industries has strict prohibitions against accepting mattress donations.

Bed Bugs Hide Away from Bed Bug Sprays in Local High School

Even after spraying for bed bugs,  GAR High School in Wilkes-Barre found 2 resilient bed bugs. Some articles suggest that the tiny bed bugs hid behind a panel, where the spray did not reach. There is also evidence that suggests that bed bugs, as a species, are becoming more resilient to bed bug sprays in general.

Bed bug infestations are becoming increasingly problematic in schools across the US. Bed bugs are often called ‘hitchhickers’ because they are able to travel easily on clothing and in backpacks; following children to and from school.

Once settled, bed bugs can reproduce quickly, and be difficult to exterminate. The best advice for parents concerned about bed bug infestations is to take preventative measures against bed bugs.

Why Use Mattress Encasements to Prevent Bed Bugs

With the rise in bed bug infestations in the United States, too often, people complain about bed bugs in their beds and bed bug bites, not knowing that covering your mattress with bed bug mattress protectors is an easy way to prevent such irritation. In fact, there are even bed bug encasements to prevent bed bug bites while you travel.

Firstly, many people don’t even know what bed bug bites look like, and are therefore unable to pinpoint where their ‘rash’ is originating. Furthermore, even people who do know how to identify a bed bug bite don’t realize just how preventable bed bug bites are. Let’s help you reduce those problems.

For those of us who do not love reading, one great way to know if you have bed bugs in the first place, is to click here and watch this bed bug movie.
But lets get back to bites. To make sure that what you have is bed bug bites, it is helpful to look at many bed bug bites pictures to compare to. It may also help to know that bed bugs usually bite in a pattern of a few bites in a row. So chances are if you have three bites close together, you were bitten by a bed bug (and not a mosquito or any other insect.)
Just because your partner sleeping in the same bed as you does not appear to have bed bug bites, does not mean that you do not have bed bugs. Most people don’t know that not all people who are bitten by bed bugs have an allergic reaction. So while you may have a big red itchy welt, your bed bug infested partner may be home free.
Another tell tale sign of bed bugs is staining on your mattress, pillow case or box spring as well as other signs of bed bug remains – such as bed bug shedding and eggs.
Here’s the best part about bed bug bites – they’re preventable. That’s right! Nobody needs to suffer from bed bugs! Companies such as Bedbug.com now sell mattress encasements, box spring protectors, pillow covers and even luggage liners that have been scientifically tested and proven bed bug free!
Lets say you already have the dreaded bed bugs’ bite. Here’s how to address it. Firstly, go to your pharmacy and get yourself some hydrocortisone cream. While the redness and swelling may remain, hydrocortisone cream has been proven to reduce the itch. Secondly, it’s still not too late to kill your existing bed bugs by locking them into, you guessed it, bed bug mattress and pillow encasements.
