According to the Observer-Reporter.com, a 68-year-old woman won’t be able to spend the holidays with her family this year out of fear of bringing unwanted guests with her into her family’s home. She is a resident of the Washington County Housing Authority in Washington, Pennsylvania, where bedbugs have been a persistent problem for the past few months. The housing authority has been proactive in dealing with the infestation, according to Witt Pest Management of Pittsburgh, yet the pests keep returning.
Don’t let bedbugs – or the fear of spreading the critters – keep you from spending time with your loved ones this holiday season. Entomologists recommend using mattress encasements to keep bedbugs out. Consider using the Protect-A-Bed AllerZip® Smooth encasement, which is completely bedbug entry, escape and bite-proof, so you won’t have to worry about bringing uninvited guests to your next holiday festivity.
