Spring break is finally here! That can only mean one thing–plenty of people will be traveling to exotic vacation spots to relax and unwind. Below are some tips to help spring breakers avoid bed bugs during their travels.
Inspect Beds & Pieces Of Furniture
It is common knowledge that bed bugs could be hiding in a mattress. However, they could also be camping out in other pieces of furniture. Once you get to your hotel room during spring break, be sure to inspect the bed and the other pieces of furniture for bed bugs before settling in.
Check Your Suitcase
Your suitcase is another place where bed bugs have been known to congregate in. After all, there are a lot of compartments for them to burrow into. As you transfer clothing from your suitcase to the closet in your hotel room, remember to check your suitcase for bed bugs.
Use Hot Water On Your Clothing
Your clothing is probably the last place you want to see a bed bug. Nonetheless, bed bugs are also notorious for clinging to pieces of clothing. If this happens to you, washing your clothing in hot water after your trip can help you get rid of these creepy crawlers for good.
