Hi Brie,

I live in AZ and unfortunately, it seems that the bed bug epidemic is in full-swing out here. We actually inherited some of the little blood-sucking, unwelcome, visitors from our neighbors downstairs and over from us in our complex almost two years ago. In AZ when the summer months come around and the temperatures are averaging above 100 the majority of people tend to frequent the movie theaters for a nice escape. These little critters actually can "hitch" a ride on clothing and when the reach a cool, dark, destination will branch out and explore. Unfortunately these little creepies can travel upwards of 100 yrds or more from their "host site." which is why many people get them from their neighbors, seeing as they travel along electrical wires in homes for the heat. We had just moved in and had purchased two new beds, one for us and one for my mother in-law who was moving in with us. at the time of purchase we decided to get a very nice full-encasement mattress protector made by Fabri-Tech . We got it mainly for the breathable qualities seeing as I sweat like a Yeti to begin with and we didn't want to eliminate the cooling qualities from our new latex bed with a standard protector with a plastic liner. We bought a traditional slip-on protector for the other bed, and about a month later we were awakened by the yells from my Mother-in-laws room, she had some uninvited house-guests of the bed-bug family. Long-story short, our bed was saved thanks to the FabriTech Protector being our saving grace! This protector is almost everything proof, has a warranty that even covers replacement for accidental punctures (we have a dog and cat that play rough). Apparently this way they can guarantee it's sealed and will perform correctly. For once something actually did what it said it was going to do! I think it was $99 through RS Mattress, which is who we got our Brooklyn Bed through. I believe they have them available online. I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND this protector, seeing as I've had a first-hand experience that it performed correctly and still is. Hope everything works out, and remember those critters are evil and resourceful! Quick sidenote, these bugs can live and lay eggs in anything with upholstery and also can survive in furniture and behind electrical plates and picture frames.

Hi NewmattguyAZ,

I'm glad you had the mattress encasement around your mattress to "defend it" against the "hostile invaders".

Thanks for the feedback :)
