Thirsty bed bugs biting you throughout the night is like living a scene from a vampire movie. You wake up in the morning with red, itching welts that are unsightly and uncomfortable.

The worse part is, the bites will continue every night until you find a way to get rid of the pests. This means a good night’s sleep will be next to impossible.

One way to help is by buying a box spring encasement.

To get started in preparation of purchasing, you’ll need to get an accurate measurement so you order the right size for your bed or beds. Here’s what you do:

  • Begin by removing all of the bed clothes from bedspread to sheets. You’ll also need to remove the mattress pad, if applicable.
  • Next, use a tape measure to determine the length of the box spring.
  • Measure the width from one side to the other.
  • Last step is measuring the height of the box spring. You’ll want to measure to just above the cording so you don’t come up short.
