Reports of bed bugs in college dorms seem to have increased recently. Chadron State College and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are among the most recent. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln alone reported a total of 54 dorm rooms with bed bug infestations.
Mattress and box spring encasements are great ways to help prevent bed bugs from spreading to other areas of a dorm. They can also help detect a problem before a full infestation occurs. Protect-a-Bed makes Student Bedding Protection Kits that feature a patented BugLock, three-sided zipper and innovative Secure Seal, which locks the encasement in place. The AllerZip bed bug mattress cover is also bed bug escape and entry proof. Visit Protect-A-Bed’s website for more information on how to protect your sleep zone from bed bugs.
