    Hi,
    When you remove the dust cover from the box spring, will the bed bugs fall out if they are hiding on the bottom of the box spring?
    Thanks.

    I flipped mine upside down and used pliers to remove the billion staples then lifted off and bagged the netting. Nothing fell out, but our infestations have been mild to moderate. I was extremely careful about it just in case though.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    I always recommend that the dust cover along with the plastic end caps be removed. The bugs won't fall out.
