When your holiday plans include traveling, it’s important to make sure you don’t end up with a bed bug problem. These tiny pests can hitch a ride home with you and cause an infestation. Keep the following in mind to avoid needing professional bed bug control New Jersey services for these pests.
Use a Luggage Rack
Avoid putting your suitcases on the floor, since bed bugs can easily climb onto them or get inside them. Place all of your luggage on luggage racks when you arrive, so you can check the room for signs of bed bugs. If you don’t have these racks, you can place your luggage in the bathroom while you look for bed bugs on the room’s furniture.
Check for Signs of Bed Bugs
Before you get settled into a hotel room, check the mattress, blankets and sheets for signs of bed bugs. Look for these small reddish-brown pests along boxspring and mattress seams and on upholstered furniture and curtains. In addition to the bugs, look for their dark reddish-brown feces spots.
Keep Personal Belongings in One Spot
Don’t spread clothing and other items around the hotel room. Try to keep your personal belongings together in one area, and always close your suitcases.
