BugZip Encasements Protect Luggage and Clothing from Bed Bugs

Supplier News

Using BugZip encasements is a proactive way for people to prevent infestations.

| February 28, 2011

The BugZip is a bed bug-resistant luggage and clothing encasement from Vantzen Products.

“Bed bugs love to hide in walls and furniture making them very difficult to detect and treat. After dining out on you for a 5-minute blood meal, they retreat back to their hideout until they are hungry again,” said Adam Greenberg, president and inventor of BugZip. “[People] now can protect their belongings from bed bugs with BugZip Luggage and Clothing Encasements.” 

The product is ideal for people who travel and spend time in high-risk locations such as hotels, apartment buildings, cruise ships, and college dorm rooms. Using BugZip encasements is a proactive way for people to prevent infestations.

Greenberg added that BugZip is ideal for storing cleaned/treated clothes and personal items prior to and during treatment of a bed bug infestation.

BugZip is made of heavy-duty clear vinyl that resists tears and can easily hold large objects. The specially designed three-sided bed bug resistant zipper allows easy access to clothing and belongings while “zipping” out bed bugs when they are on the move. It comes in four convenient sizes and is simple to use.

BugZip is now available for purchase by the pest management industry at Univar USA Professional Products and Services. For more information visit www.bugzip.com
