StopPests now has a dust mite page:

I was told that if you use a zip up beg bug bag that it will still create condensation inside the bag and then create a mold problem in the mattress. Is that true?

Kayte, thanks for sharing your question. As long as the mattress is dry there shouldn't be a mold problem. I think a situation like you describe would require extreme humidity conditions, but even that would be a stretch. So mattress encasements are still one of the first measures recommended for bed bug and dust mite control.
