I paid a lot of money for my mattress do I have to throw it out?
One, this is a tricky question that we get a lot. It all depends on the level of infestation. If we find two bedbugs we can save the mattress, but if the mattress is heavily infested you must replace the mattress. It is recommended that you purchase bedbug covers to protect your mattress against future infestations.
What are bedbug covers and how do they feel?
Bedbug covers are made with breathable material so that you can have a good rest on and are almost always white in color. It is necessary for the colour to be white so that bedbug identification is quick to find and prevents you from throwing out a very expensive mattress.
What other questions should you be asking your pest management professional in regards to bedbugs?
