Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs have made a strong comeback in the U.S., and are increasingly prevalent in homes, apartments, hotels, and dormitories. Bed bugs feed on human blood, and usually bite people while they are sleeping. Bed bug bites can be itchy and painful and may cause allergic reactions.
Active Guard mattress liners are proven to kill bed bugs in mattresses. Using Active Guard mattress liners is a great way to protect yourself and your family against bed bug bites. They are extremely easy to use, and go onto the mattress just like a fitted sheet.
Dust Mite Control
No more sprays and powders or wrestling to remove, wash and reinstall your mattress encasings every few weeks. Sprays and powders can cause allergic reactions and need to be applied regularly and accurately to be effective. Mattress encasings do not get rid of the dust mites - they continue to live and breed in the mattress while you are sleeping. That’s why we developed ActiveGuard.
ActiveGuard mattress liners don’t just trap the dust mites, they kill them -- for up to 2 years, providing continuous protection with no regular maintenance required. Simply place ActiveGuard mattress liners on top of the mattress, beneath the mattress liner, and/or bottom sheet. ActiveGuard can be used in addition to a mattress encasing, or as a replacement.
ActiveGuard mattress liners have a special, controlled-release formulation that protects the mattress, and those sleeping above it, from dust mites and their allergens.
Long lasting - kills dust mites and keeps bedding clear for up to two (2) years
Also kills bed bugs in mattresses
Soft and comfortable: no sweating
Easy to use – no washing required
Just pennies a day for superior, long lasting protection
Can the ActiveGuard Mattress Liner be used effectively for a platform bed to cover the wood slats under the mattress?
I do not have box spring instead wood planking that has been treated as well as mattress encasement. Can this be used over the wood planking for added protection?
While the ActiveGuard liner has not been specifically tested for use on the wooden slats under a mattress, and it is really designed more for a soft surface like a mattress, boxspring or sofa bed, it could potentially work for your needs. Normally with slats you would spray the slats where they connect with the bed frame with a residual bedbug insecticide like Temprid SC to give you continuous protection in those areas.
Is the fitted sheet placed over this ActiveGuard Mattress Liner for protection against skin irritation?
Also, what are the vapor effects on humans sleeping 8 hrs/day using this liner over the life of the product?
Per the ActiveGuard Mattress Linerproduct label, you should place another surface such as mattress pad, barrier encasement or bottom sheet over the mattress liner. There are no known vapor effects of this product. This product is EPA Toxicology Category IV by all routes of exposure. Therefore no signal word nor Hazards to Humans and Domestic Animal Statements are required.
Can I use a mattress pad over the ActiveGuard Mattress Liner made of cotton and still protect from bed bugs?
Yes, when using the ActiveGuard Mattress Liner you should also use a mattress pad or cover and then a fitted or top sheet on the bed. Please see our Bed Bug Guide for more information about how to Identify, Inspect, Treat, and Prevent bed bug infestations.
