Mattress encasements are cases made of strong materials (polyurethane, polyester, etc.), which are designed to protect the mattress from bed bugs getting inside and outside. Many people believe that the trick that covers do is that they are slippery and the bugs therefore simply slip off and can't crawl back up.

We purchased mattress covers made specifically for bed bugs @ Walmart. Twin size was $30. They also sell a mattress cover under the house brand name for $20. We were going to use them to cover our box spring, but they didn't fit. We used the one that we had already opened for the twin bed in the guest room.
