Despite what the media may portray, bed bugs are not swarming hotel rooms just waiting to hitch a ride back home with you. In reality, you’re far more likely to bring bed bugs home by purchasing that used couch you saw on Facebook marketplace than you are from staying in a hotel during your summer vacation. Shocking, right?!
Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, you never want to bring home any unwanted visitors. There are a few simple things you can do while traveling to reduce your risk of bringing bed bugs back with you.
So you inspected your furniture and luggage and found evidence or real bugs- now what? First thing- don’t panic! With proper treatment it is possible to eliminate bed bugs from your home.
