Bed bug mattress cover

Use a bed bug mattress cover once your extermination is complete. I personally recommend one that's similar to what I used below. As you can see, my mattress is completely encased. This brand is machine washable. I recommend you heat your mattress cover to at least 120 degrees. Do not be enticed to purchase a higher priced one because you won't need to.
