Think You Know About Bed Bugs? Think Again!

 

In Conclusion

When you enter your room, place your suitcase/belongings in the bathroom & hang up your coat instead of placing things on your bed at first.

We also highly recommend that you do a quick overall inspection of the bed & even headboard.  By this we mean “un-tuck” the corners of the bed & check the mattress, especially in the corners. You probably won’t see the bugs, but you just might see eggs (yuck) – dead shredded skins and there might even be a slight odor (raspberry).  Don’t be shy to complain & insist on changing rooms. In my experience, most Hotels are willing to accommodate your needs.

And finally, when you return home, open your luggage in your garage & wash your travel clothes immediately!

Happy Travels!


Think You Know About Bed Bugs? Think Again!

Part Two

Did you also know that when you travel, you could be bringing home these lovely critters? Bed Bugs are known to climb into your suitcase, if you are staying in an infested hotel room.  If you place your suitcase or clothes on the Hotel bed that’s infested, (keep in mind  that they are so tiny, you will never be able to see them)  they could just  climb on aboard & decide to travel along with you, all the way until you unpack  your clothes at home, then, they will set up house on your bed!  : o

Not the kind of guests I would love to have in my house!
