Bed Bug Travel Tips
Prevent Bed Bugs from coming home with you
Bed bugs have become a huge problem throughout the United States. Once they are carried into a home, they breed quickly which leads to an infestation that can be difficult to manage. When traveling, you will want to use caution. Bed bugs can be picked up at hotels or even when visiting friends and relatives among various other places. It only takes one bed bug to cause a large problem.
Bed bugs can be found in bedding, in between sheets and on the mattress. They can also be found in carpet and furniture. They will be found wherever there are humans as they feed on human blood. If you are traveling and staying at a dwelling other than your own home, you should check for any signs of bed bugs. If you do see a bed bug where you are staying you can either find another place to stay or you can take the risk of being bitten by bed bugs and carrying them back home with you. If you do have no other choice but to stay in a place known to have bed bugs, it is essential that you shower before entering your home or another dwelling to prevent the spread of bed bugs. You must also wash all clothing and other washables as soon as you get home. You should use the hottest water setting available. Heat kills bed bugs. If you have items, such as luggage that you cannot wash, seal it in a plastic bag for several weeks. This will kill any bed bugs that you were not able to kill in the washing machine.
