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
  • Completely odorless
  • Easy to use – no washing required
  • Just pennies a day for superior, long lasting protection

    Learn how it works before giving a bad review

    By James on 10/10/2021

    First thing , don't use on top of mattress or use a bed skirt. If you have a box sping you remove the mattress and put on boxspring like a sheet then put mattress back with Active Guard between the 2 like a sandwich.. If you don't have a box spring simply install on the back side, bottom of mattress. These things do wonders to help a liquid treatment. I have used these on ALL treatments for years now........ Not a stand alone treatment..

    Don't Bother

    By Melissa on 11/16/2020

    Not only did it take longer to arrive due to the manufacturer not having any ready, but it did not work at all. Bugs crawl on it with no problem and never die. Don't waste your money.

    DoMyOwn company

    By Joanna on 10/28/2022

    I give five stars because your products always deliver with purpose. Someone a few years back brought bed bugs into my home and I begin searching different companies. I discovered domyown after receiving my products the first few weeks felt like a great relief. I felt my home returning back to normal. They save me thousands a dollars. I continue to stay with domyown because their products works quickly. They have safety data sheets and videos to watch, and customer service support. I appreciate this company.

Sort Questions
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.
