Bed Bug Prevention for Travelers

Travel is a part of life to sporting events, performances, competitions, conferences and even just trips home. Just make sure that you don't bring home any unwanted guests - bed bugs.    

Here are a few tips that can help:

  • Check bedbugregistry.com to see hotels that have had bedbugs so you can avoid those locations.
  • When you get to your hotel room, peel back the sheets and check for any tiny black spots, translucent skin or the presence of actual bed bugs. Also do a quick check of the mattress seams and around the headboard.
  • Elevate your suitcases on the metal luggage racks and consider placing it in the tub. Bedbugs cannot crawl up metal or porcelain.
  • When you pack to leave, inspect your luggage carefully first as well as each item you pack.

Education can help you protect yourself and your belongings. Check out these additional resources:
