Zinus Abel Metal Bed Frame

Quick Lock assembly system. Because this frame features several thick steel mattress support slats that don’t require any bolts to snap into place, giving you a sound foundation that’s ready in under an hour. No outside tools or engineering degree required.

Bed Bug Proof Mattress and Box Spring Encasements

  • You must encase both your mattress and box spring. You probably want to avoid vinyl encasements because they don’t breath and can be noisy. However, vinyl encasements are cheap and are impermeable to bed bugs, so this is an option if you are on a tight budget.

Bed Bug Proof Pillow Encasements

  • It’s not necessary to encase your pillows. It is sufficient to heat treat your pillows by putting them in ZappBug or putting them in your dryer on high. But we do recommend that you also encase your pillows, just for that extra level of reassurance.

Metal Bed Frame

  • You don’t have to use a metal bed frame, but we do recommend it. Bed bugs are not great climbers and, in particular, it is more difficult for them to climb metal.

Diatomaceous Earth, 100% Organic Food Grade

Diatomaceous Earth, 100% Organic Food Grade

Diatomaceous earth (DE) is essential for anyone looking for natural remedies in their home, yard, garden or homestead. This amazing product is made of tiny, fossilized diatoms (plankton) that accumulated over millennia in fresh water lakes.

Diatomaceous Earth

  • We go into a much greater detail about diatomaceous earth in Step 4. Diatomaceous earth is a natural, non-toxic substance that is very effective in helping control bed bugs. You will be using it before you vacuum around your bed area and also using a thick bead to create a perimeter in your layered defense of your safe zone.

Pesticide Duster

  • For spreading a lot of diatomaceous earth over a wide area (for example, when you are covering a carpet or floor with d.e.), a pesticide duster is useful. It’s not necessary, but it is helpful.

Dust Masks (for Diatomaceous Earth)

  • Diatomaceous Earth is non-toxic and safe to handle. However, if you are spreading a lot of D.E. around and getting it airborne, then you will want to wear a dust mask, because getting any fine particulate matter in your lungs is not a good idea.

  • If you have an area rug under your bed, you can simply fold it up and put it in ZappBug to heat treat. But if you have wall to wall carpeting in your bedroom, you will need to shampoo it.
