Using a mattress cover in the battle of bed bugs is gaining popularity on both a defensive and offensive front. If you are unfortunately already infested with these bad boys then you can avoid having to throw away your whole bed set and/or drenching your bed with chemicals by wrapping your bed and box spring in a hypo-allergenic mattress cover. This will keep any live ones from escaping and prevent any new ones from infesting the millions of cracks, crevices, tufts, nooks and crannies that a mattress and box spring have to offer these bugs. The trapped ones will eventually die from hunger and you've saved yourself a grand by not throwing away your bed.
On a defensive front if you travel and you happen to bring some of these buggers home with you then this will keep them out of the posts that they love the best which is your mattress and box spring.
Mattress covers are just a tool in the vast arsenal it takes to get bed bugs under control and eventually eliminated, but it's definitely a tool worth investigating.
