Apply insecticide on the mattress, box springs and bed components without spraying the mattress surface, bed sheets, blankets or clothing. After spraying and dusting, encase your mattress in one and the box spring in another sealable cover. If you just cover your mattress and box spring with plastic, the bed bugs will chew right through it. Cloth is probably more comfortable and more secure. Allergy supply companies sell zippered encasements for dust mite prevention.
Health problems occur in our pets, especially as they get older. They may need surgery, thus the need to be comfortable through their healing process. They may develop arthritis or other joint issues. Whatever the situation, the best type of bed for your dog, if he has any of these problems, is the orthopedic dog bed. A memory foam bed eliminates the pressure on his joints. It provides the comfort and support he needs. In their younger years large dogs may not have aches, pains or health problems, but by virtue of their size, they need more support for their body.
If your cat is strictly an outdoor cat or likes to sleep in the garage, or you are kind enough to want to provide warmth for a couple of feral cats, you can make an easy, inexpensive bed. I bought large clear plastic storage containers, removed the lids, and turned the container on its side. I then put down old towels and blankets inside the bin to provide comfort. If you don’t have any old blankets, I purchased a very inexpensive fleece blanket, cut in into thirds, folded the blanket and placed that on the old towels.
Keeping the mattress covers sealed for a year or 18 months ensures you destroy the bug’s life cycle. Inspect the bag regularly for damage; if you find any holes or tears, seal them with permanent tape and any trapped bugs will eventually die. Only apply insecticide to a mattress if the product label specifically mentions it, and very few do. Should you find one, apply it as a light mist to the entire mattress, opening seams, tufts, and folds so the chemical penetrates these hiding places. Allow it to dry completely before using. Never sleep directly on a treated mattress without bed linen and do not treat mattresses of infants or ill people.
