Protect your bed
Ok, now that you’ve got that nasty piece of business out of the way, it’s time to get serious about protecting your bed. And to do that, you’ll want to pick up a mattress encasement. Think of it as a giant Ziploc bag for your mattress. This special bag will trap any possible bed bugs, keeping them hostage until they are dead. Just make sure the encasement is airtight. Bed bugs can squeeze in and out through the tiniest of openings.
Next, move your bed away from walls, nightstands, furniture or any other points of contact. Also make sure your sheets, blankets, comforters and other bedding materials are not touching the floor.
Tracking down bed bugs is no easy task. These nocturnal nuisances won’t make a move until you’re fast asleep. So, if you want to stop bed bugs in their tracks and cut them off from their food source (you), place climb-up interceptors—effective bed bug treatments Surrey—under each leg of the bed. Bed bugs attempting to climb up your bed legs will fall into the trap, preventing them from getting to you.
