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?

Bed Bugs (2013)

Do I need a bed bug sheet?

 

The question was:

I found many discussions about this, but most of them was solved by Permethrin, but I can not find it in Europes stores. Is this problem really so hot on Camino Frances, or are there just few rare cases in concrete albergues? Thank you for answers and sharing your experiences. I will travel from SJPP in half of April.

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?
