This is a big one!!!
Bed bugs are usually found in bedding and bed mattresses. Usually they develop colonies in old mattresses, especially the ones that have timber and coir in them as the backing substances. When you wish to get rid of such problems, it would be wise to invest in a bed bug proof mattress. These are usually ordinary mattresses, but they come with an additional encasement layer. Other kinds of bed bug proof mattress options are air mattress where bed bugs find it difficult to live in or thrive.
Hotels and other places where there is fear of bed bug infestation can be kept safe by using pesticides regularly. However, there are concerns about bed bugs having developed resistance to the chemical agents that are present in pesticide products. Hence it is best that someone resorts to preventative measures like bed bug proof mattresses or ensure proper sanitation methods in order to prevent build up of colonies of such bugs.
Bed bugs usually do not pose any risk to human health; they usually find undisturbed spaces where they can set up nests and colonies from where they have close access to human hosts. Bed bugs are known to be hardy and they can survive for months between feeding opportunities.
However, in extreme heat as well as freezing cold conditions can kill them. When you wish to prevent the possibility of bed bug colonies developments in your bedding mattress, it is best that you invest in a bed bug proof mattress. In such mattresses, there are wraps and encasements. These keep the mattress enclosed with zippers; bugs are unable to come out and feed and they cannot build nests as well. This leads to decline of the population of bed bugs. Even with air mattresses have tough, rubbery surfaces where bed bugs cannot burrow in. Even if you suspect that they might be in your bed linen, run them through a washing cycle in the machine and they would be eliminated.
