Where and why do you need the Bug Bag against bed bugs?
More and more often, accommodations, especially alpine huts, are affected by bedbugs. Bedbugs are attracted to smells and like to hide in the luggage of their guests. This allows bedbugs to travel home or to the nearest accommodation unnoticed, where they can cause further infestations. Luggage accompanies us not only to whatever accommodations we use, like hotels and hostels, but can also spread into our preferred means of transport, like airplanes, busses or trains. This way, bedbugs can spread unnoticed from baggage to baggage. Since bedbugs prefer hard surfaces, their contents such as jackets, electronic devices, washing bags etc. are also at risk.
How does the Bug Bag work?
The inner material of the PERMETEX® Bug Bag is equipped with the active ingredient permethrin. If bedbugs touch the material, they will avoid any further contact. The outer material of the Bug Bag is robust and repels both water and dirt. This makes the Bug Bag the ideal protection for your backpack, e.g. on a trip around the world. The zipper on the long side of the Bug Bag makes it quick easy to remove the backpack.
What material is the Bug Bag made of?
The inner material of the Bug Bag is 70% cotton and 30% polyester. The material is equipped with Permethrin (0,9% w/w). The material is breathable, heavy duty, quick-drying and low-maintenance. The outer material consists of 100% polyamide and is FC coated, so that it is water and dirt repellent. THis also makes the Bug Bag very robust. All materials used are certified according to OEKO-Tex Standard 100.
How long does the protective function of the material last?
The protective function of the material is active for at least 100 washes. After 100 washes, it decreases slowly because of the way the active ingredient that is anchored to the fibres of the material. Regular use and washing changes the structure of the fibres and thus also the concentration of the active ingredient. The protection cannot be reactivated.
In which sizes is the Bag Bag available?
The bed bugs bag has a size of 80x120cm and weighs about 700g. It’s durable and can hold contents weighing up to 60kg when suspended. Due to its robust outer shell and its elongated shape, it is best suited for the protection of hiking and travel backpacks in the standard sizes.
If you also need protection for your handbag or a small number of personal items, we recommend our clothes storage box. You can use it in the room of your accommodation or in the plane for your handbag, your notebook or small personal items.
Is the Bug Bag also available in other sizes?
If your backpack does not correspond to the dimensions of our Bug Bag, we will be happy to make a customized Bug Bag in the desired dimensions for you. Please contact us by email or via our service hotline.
Use the Bug Bag to protect your backpack from bedbugs and other vermin while travelling.
Lay the Bug Bag flat on the ground, as far away from the bed as possible. Open the zipper on the long side. Slide your backpack into the Bug Bag. Close the bow bag carefully afterwards. You can use the loop at the top of the bag to hang it over a door or hook.
Avoid leaving the contents of the backpack open in the room, especially near the bed.
Since the bug-repelling permethrin is only in the inner lining of the bug bag, turn the bag inside out after use, before packing it in your backpack to be certain.

Bug bag - ein guter Schutz
Für einen Aufenthalt in Ostafrika war ein Bettwanzenschutz nötig. Es wurden vielerlei Vorkehrungen getroffen, um das befallene Haus von den Schädlingen zu befreien (auf Rat von Fachleuten aus Berlin). Das gelang auch. Zusätzlichen Schutz und auch ein Gefühl der Sicherheit, verlieh der Bug bag, in dem alle wichtigen Utensilien gut verschlossen aufbewahrt wurden. Der Reisende kehrte , frei von Bettwanzen, nach Europa zurück. Herzlichen Dank!
