What is good about a mattress incasement is that if you do have a brand new mattress and somehow bedbugs find their way to your apt - you don't have to throw out your mattress.
$90 vs buying a whole new mattress is better to me.

A mattress has lots of seams and little holes the bugs can easily hide in. And yes they can hide everywhere - books, wall sockets, furniture, clothes etc. With the incasement I just like being able to rule out one area that they could possibly be in.

I agree with LBhirise, once you have them you have them.
Though if you have a cover like this, you will be able to find bedbugs easier and not have to throw out your mattress if you do get them.

AND anyone who has had bedbugs and is online, as we have - has heard of Bedbugger.com and it's their bible.
Where all the facts & myths are laid out about bedbugs.

We didn't have them in our mattress but in our wood bedframe and our couch - as confirmed by Jada the bedbug sniffing dog.

For a different Ikea bookshelf we had a handyman secure it with a L bracket.

Vinny painted our apt 2 weeks ago, he did a really great job!
Picking colors was soo hard.

We finally went with BM Cedar Key in the Living Room and BM Chocolate Candy brown in the living room.

I'm so happy we had Vinny do it rather than ourselves.

Hi Joan,

Technically they say not to start throwing out all your stuff. Alot of great info on bedbugger.com
We had a bed bug sniffing dog come in after I went without bites for a long time and got bit again.

She confirmed that they were in the bedframe and couch.
So we carefully disposed of those 2 pieces and got treated again by a professional PCO (2 more times evenly spaced out).

One rug we are throwing out, just because we don't like the design and the other we're keeping. Both were treated with poison a few times too.

I'm happy its almost all over!

I actually tried 4 sample little bottles from Benjamin Moore.
I'm hoping for some suggestions to narrow down my samples.
Those little samples add up.
