Bed Bug Holiday Travel Tips
Greetings holiday travelers!
We all enjoy this special season. Some of us love to escape the cold and cruise the Caribbean. The winter sports family prefers a trip to Boone, West Virginia, or the ultimate in snow fun, Colorado! Those of us who are able to travel for the holidays are a lucky bunch. Although, the luck can easily run out with a bed bug infestation.
Here are a few tips to help get you prepared! The dangers are real, frustrating, and costly.
Bed Bug Travel Tips:
- Headboards can contain the majority of bed bugs in hotels. Try to remove the headboard from the wall (it’s easy, I promise) for close inspection.
- Inspect mattress corners, mattress covers and lamp shades next to the bed in your hotel room for infestation.
- Try to put some light on the situation to make sure you can accurately see anything that may be crawling around or evidence of bed bug infestation.
- Keep your luggage in the tub of your hotel bathroom and do not bring luggage into your home when you return.
I know it seems like a lot of effort, but it’s worth it!
We hope you have a wonderful upcoming holiday season! Make sure you let us know if we can be of any help to you and your family!
