Without encasements, an infestation can go undetected for weeks, and it is very likely that the bed bugs may spread to any adjacent rooms.

The white color of the encasements makes it very easy to see the black fecal spots they leave after feeding. You are more likely to notice an infestation much quicker when using encasements and will be able to call an exterminator right away when there may be only a few bed bugs. You can't rely on finding itchy bites right away as a warning sign because many people do not react to the bites initially. Encasements protect your investment in bedding and take away the bed bugs favorite hiding spots.
