In this episode Jeff will talk about how to avoid staying in a hotel room that is overly infested with bed bugs and how to avoid taking bed bugs home with you. With bed bugs on the rise it is becoming more common to encounter bed bugs in hotels. While a basic inspection of the headboard and box spring in the room may help you avoid staying in an overly infested room, it would be almost impossible to find a bed bug in a light infestation and therefore addressing your belongings when you return home is critical. Simple steps such as bringing either dissolvable laundry bags or garbage bags to separate your clothes into launderable piles before you leave can reduce the chance that you introduce a bed bug into your home. Also, knowing how to address your suitcase when you return is extremely important as bugs may have hitched a ride on the outside of the suitcase. Follow these simple steps and you can drastically reduce the chance you take a bed bug home during your travels.
