Why use a box spring encasement for bed bug control?
Bed Bug boxspring encasements and mattress encasements are a recommended addition to any bed bug treatment program. You will still need to treat infested areas of the bedrooms. However, because the #1 breeding ground for bed bugs is the mattress and boxspring, you can now just spray and then zip up these critical areas which will eliminate a large part of the infestation. In addition, this can save an infested boxspring so you don't have to throw it out and buy a replacement. Any eggs and/or bed bugs trapped in the encasement will eventually die. Boxspring encasements and mattress encasements are also nice because they provide very few if any places for bed bugs to hide and harbor (compare that with all of the folds, seams, nooks and crannies of a mattress and box spring), and they are clean and white making future investigation and treatment easy. Also consider that if you should find bed bugs on your mattress again at some point in the future, treatment would be as easy as taking off the mattress encasement and washing it in warm water. Again, the key harborage areas for bed bugs would be protected, and so would your mattress investment.
We recommend spraying an infested boxspring with bed bug control products first before encasing it and then keeping the encasement intact for at least 12 months (bed bugs can live a very long time without a blood meal). The bed bugs and eggs inside will die, and the box spring will be protected from further infestation.

Dual Twin-XL's fit box-springs under King
By Mzb on September 7, 2010
The zipper opens one end and most of each side, making insertion easy. Its closure is designed much better than several other varieties I found in stores nearby. I found the squares of felt too thick for our metal frame, so I used packaging tape to cover several sharp points - rivet heads, keyholes. None of the hated creatures have survived or escaped; the rather lightweight material has not fallen apart on exposure to diatomaceous earth or rubbing alcohol. Fit is loose, since boxes are not as thick as measure given. Timely sent.

the encasement material is not very high quality. the value is good based on the price.
