Before contacting a professional to remove bed bugs from your home or hotel, consider a few tips to prevent bedbug infestations. First, be diligent about checking your bedding and sheets for visible signs of infestation. When in doubt, ask for a room change if you suspect you may have bedbugs. To avoid the problem entirely, try to find a room in a different building. If you suspect a room is infested with bedbugs, do not be afraid to report it immediately to the staff.
Once you have determined the presence of bedbugs, take the time to clean your bedding and other belongings. While bedbugs do not fly, they can be easily transferred from one place to another, making hotels a hotbed of bedbugs. Since people can transfer these bugs from one place to another, they can also get onto clothing, purses, briefcases, and luggage. In a hotel, it is important to take all the necessary steps to get rid of these pests as soon as possible.
During your stay, you can take precautions to kill bedbugs. After arriving at your hotel room, put your luggage in the bathroom, and pull back your bed sheets. Next, look for any cracks in the mattress or box spring. Often, bedbugs are difficult to spot with the naked eye, but luckily, their exoskeletons make them easy to spot. You can also use a flashlight to inspect the seams under your mattress and other soft surfaces.
