Bed Bugs and Travel


A common misconception is that bed bugs are only found in cheap, dirty hotels or motels. This is not true! In fact, bed bugs prefer cleaner environments, and they do not discriminate between budget accommodations and luxury properties. And it doesn’t stop there – bed bugs are sometimes found in office buildings, movie theaters, other people’s homes, and many other places. Nothing is off limits.

How to Inspect Your Room for Bed Bugs

The important thing to remember is the sizes you’re dealing with. Bed bugs and the incriminating evidence they leave behind are small, so you have to look closely. Here’s what to do as soon as you get into your hotel room:

  • Suitcase and belongings in the bathroom
  • Look for tiny stains, eggs, and shedded skins
  • Sheets off the bed and inspect the mattress
  • Flip the mattress to check the other side
  • Inspect the box spring, bed frame, and headboard
  • Inspect other furniture in your room

If you do bring home bed bugs, the bad news is they multiply quickly, so the best way to get rid of them is to act fast and be thorough. CALL US!
