Even as life in the US grinds to a halt: school closings, businesses shutters, and large sections of the community sheltering in their homes, millions of truck drivers are braving public spaces every day to continue to bring essential goods to the American public.
So first of all, we at American Truck Mattress would like to say Thank You.
Thank you to the drivers who are continuing to provide the public with this essential service. Thank you to the fleet managers and owners who continue to find ways to move goods across the country. Thank you to the families of the drivers who sit at home nervously, hoping their loved one doesn't contract this dreaded illness. We recognize your unsung service to the American public.

So you just started your new job. You jump in the cab of that truck, grab the wheel, and get ready to hit the road. And then you look around. This is home every time you hit the road.

At the end of the day, a good night's sleep should be the number one priority of the American truck driver. It will keep you healthier, and it will keep you, and those on the road beside you, safer.
It'll never happen to me. We've heard it a thousand times. But in the world of OTR driving, bed bugs can happen to even the best of us. Why? Because, over the course of the millions of miles travelled, you come in contact with thousands of other people, who come in contact with thousands of other people, who come in contact with… well you get it. And some of those people have come in contact with bed bugs. Just look at the stats.
Bed bugs can hitch hike on any soft surface: clothing, sheets, towels, you name it. And even the briefest of encounters with a bed bug host can leave you itching. Did you know bed bugs (and their eggs) can live in temperatures up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This means the little critters (and their eggs) can survive laundering, showers, and are tolerant of most generic chemical sprays. One contaminated truck stop encounter puts you and thousands of other drivers at risk.
Facts you may not know about bed bugs:
