I purchased the bedlam spray and the sterifab, also the boxspring and mattress encasements. Last night I saw two bedbugs on my sheets. Aren't the encasements suppose to keep the off of my bed?
Encasements do not keep bedbugs from crawling onto your bed. They keep the bedbugs from infesting your mattress and boxspring and the encasements make it easier to inspect your bed for signs of bedbugs. You should move your bed away from the walls if at all possible and make sure you are treating all of the cracks and crevices in your room every 7-10 days until you do not see signs of bedbugs for at 30 days. We have linked our Bedbug Guide below and also our Inspection Guide so you can see what is needed to get rid of bedbugs.
