SUTTON, Neb. — GBS Enterprises recently has begun promoting its Allergy Sentry Mattress Encasements to the pest control industry now that product testing by Snell Scientifics Entomological Laboratory of Barnesville, Ga., is complete. Product testing focused on bed bugs and whether or not they could escape through the fabric itself, the seams, the product’s zipper or zipper closure. Testing completed with tremendously positive results, GBS Enterprises reports. No bed bug was capable of escaping the Allergy Sentry Mattress Encasement. The lab used both adult bed bugs and nymphs, along with their eggs, throughout the course of the experiment.

Additional testing proved live bed bugs were not able to feed through the fabric of the product, the firm reports. Hungry bed bugs were offered a human blood meal with the Allergy Sentry Mattress Encasement serving as the only barrier between them and the human offering. The eager bed bugs were unable to penetrate the product’s fabric to feed, according to the manufacturer.

“With bed bugs making their way back into homes in the United States, it is more important now than ever to encase a mattress,” said Mike Svoboda, CEO of GBS Enterprises. “If your mattress is encased, it can prevent Bed Bugs from getting into the mattress should the tiny pests hitchhike their way into your home.”

GBS Enterprises president Dave Powers said, “This is incredible news for customers and hotel owners who find it financially straining to discard their mattress(es) following professional treatment of their bed bug infestation. Our Allergy Sentry Mattress Encasement offers them a reasonably priced and effective way to keep their mattress(es) without the concerns of Bed Bugs escaping to re-infest their home or property.”

The Allergy Sentry Mattress Encasement is also an effective barrier against dust mites. The product features a waterproof yet breathable backing that dust mites are unable to penetrate. The mattress fits inside the encasement to provide all-around protection. The company also offers a matching Box Spring Encasement that is bed bug resistant as well.
