Summer is a prime time to bring bed bugs home. These are small insects that have adapted their entire life cycle to prey on humans. As we travel we help them to spread. This means that every vacation, road trip, and sleep over is an opportunity for bed bugs to come to your home.
Preventing the Spread of Bed Bugs
Motels and hotels are a prime location to acquire bed bugs. A constant influx of visitors makes a great bed bug habitat.
Bed bugs are most active at night. They crawl around looking for a meal. In the process, they can make their way into your luggage and soiled clothing. Leaving clothing or luggage on the floor gives bed bugs the opportunity to lay eggs that can easily go unseen. Laundry and luggage also provide the perfect daytime shelter. When you stay in a hotel, motel, Airbnb, or even a friend’s house, be sure keep your luggage and clothing off of the floor. Always use the suitcase stand to store your luggage.
