Well, Life in America can't always be good. There are sometimes stories that come such as "Hotel has millions of bed bugs in its mattress covers. Wow, how does that make you feel?
Well, never fear. On the internet there is just about everything. Yes you guessed it. There is a site that tells you how to rid yourself of a bed bug infestation, and all the problems associated with it. Never thought you would be looking that one up. Well, even the best of households can have this type of problem.
That site says that one of the first things anyone who finds out they have a bed bug infestation should get is a mattress encasement. This is just a little bit different from the standard cover you would get that just keeps the top from getting stains on it. Rather than just going over it, it actually zips around it entirely and seals up the inside - meaning no bugs are getting in or out. The ones that still live inside will die off, because they've got no chance to get out and get any food. That will take at least six months or so and up to eighteen in extreme cases (they can live a long time without feeding). However, there really isn't anything wrong with having them in there as long as they can't bite you.
Well, there you have it. If you got them - get them under control.
You don't want to have to use the old saying "goodnight and don't let the bud bugs bite."
