Bedbug undersheet – worth it?

bedbug undersheet - worth it?

The question was:

Planning my first Camino in the spring, thinking about the dreaded bedbugs. Apart from spraying with Permethrin etc – and I don’t, please, want to re-open the debate about that, it has been well-discussed elsewhere! – I have a specific question.

Lifeventure (and probably other people too) sell a bed bug undersheet, like a mesh mattress cover, impregnated.

Is this worth purchasing? Part of me thinks yes, minimal weight, only costs a few £, added protection etc; but on the other hand, it presumably won’t prevent bedbugs from getting into my clothes, towel, backpack, boots etc unless they stay said on said sheet the entire time (ie once they are hanging on bedframes etc).

Views please – anyone used one? Did it help?

Do I need a bed bug sheet?

The question was:

My friend and I will be walking the Camino in June. We’re wondering if anyone has advice re: preventing exposure to bed bugs and if any of you have used fitted bed bug preventing (i.e., treated) sheets in your travels. If so, how did these work for you?

Best Way to Handle Bedbugs On the Camino de Santiago

Bed Bug

The question was:

So, my preventative measures failed and Im pretty sure Im carrying some unwelcome guests in my sleeping bag. I was bitten badly one night even after I stopped sleeping in by bag, and was bitten only slightly for the few following nights when I slept in my bag. Ive since stopped using my sleeping bag and I havent gotten any new bites. But heres the question; whats the best way to get bedbugs out of your stuff when your on the camino? Bad news is is that my sleeping bag is down, too. Ive looked everywhere for suggestions on what to do, but I havent found anything.
