Vacation Without Bed Bugs
Finding bedbugs while traveling can be a nightmare. As a tourist, one thing is for sure, and that is that we are going to sleep in different places from our house.
These creatures love to travel almost as much as you do. Which carries the risk of waking you up in the morning, covered in bites – possibly bed bug bites!
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that a flea, spider or mosquito has primed with us.
But look a little closer, because you may have been the victim of something completely different.
You may have been bitten countless times and your skin shows absolutely no signs or small blisters may appear that look like mosquito bites. A somewhat difficult diagnosis!
In today’s publication, we are going to share our knowledge about bed bug pests, and we announce to you now that eradicating them is somewhat complicated, requiring the help of an expert in pest control.
Where do bedbugs hide in hotels?
It is likely that if you look closely you will see signs of bedbugs. Check the seams of the mattress, headboard, box spring, and upholstered furniture for small black spots, droppings, insect fur, and small white eggs.
It is a mistake to think that you are safe from bed bug pests because you are not in a dirty or cheap hotel. Bedbugs don’t discriminate between cheap and luxury accommodations.
If you suspect bedbugs, request another room or even consider changing hotels.
Although they do not fly, they can be moved from one place to another hooking on clothing, sewing of suitcases, bags, furniture, souvenirs, etc. and then go down when they reach their new destination.
If only one bedbug lays eggs in a seam in your luggage or clothes, be sure to turn your home into a nightmare.
So it is always a good idea to do an inspection of things when you get home. Be sure to do an inspection before leaving your suitcase on the bed. Wash and dry all your clothes at a very high temperature. This will destroy bedbugs at all stages, including eggs.
It is best to leave it in the tub until you are sure there is no hidden bed bug infestation.
