PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – As your child heads off to college, a national retailer wants to make sure he’s protected from little critters.

Head into any Bed Bath and Beyond store and you’ll see parents and students wandering the aisles grabbing items found on a list of suggested things needed for your college dorm, such as lamps, storage boxes and items needed to protect against bed bugs.

Angel Varricchio, the store’s district customer service trainer says start with a mattress protector, “Typically you think of a mattress protector to protect a new mattress, in this instance we want to protect you from the mattress that you’re sleeping on.”

She say adding layers between that used mattress and you is ideal, “It is going to protect you from bed bugs and other allergens as well. It’s not a new mattress, so just a barrier between you and other people who have used it before.”

So top the protector with a mattress pad and top that off with a mattress enhancer for comfort.
