Bed Bug Monitors: Optimal Use and Best Practices of Active Monitors
Posted by on 12/16/2010 to Products

Bed Bugs: Why Protection & Prevention?
Posted by on 12/9/2010 to News

These measures are akin to brushing your teeth and avoiding more costly and perhaps more risky procedures. The right mattress encasement is a hybrid solution in that they prevent material loss and protect against bed bugs by making one of their favorite homes unlivable. As you might already see, protection & prevention are interchangeable and collectively the mantra represents "a common sense proactive approach to avoiding problems in a responsible manner." While it is actually the closest thing to a quick fix, it promises not to come back and haunt you later.
