Traveling? Awesome! Getting ready and preparing a list for your travel is one of the fun things to do, but an essential list should also be made – the checklist for preventing bedbugs. You surely need to follow this list before and after unpacking for a trip.
As you may have known, bed bugs are tiny creatures that could torment you for a long time, and they are tough to get rid of, as these bloodsuckers are excellent hitchhikers that can hide in small cracks, and travelers could obtain them at various lodging facilities, including 5-star hotels.
It’s often advised to use a light-colored suitcase instead of a dark suitcase so you can easily spot these tiny insects. Upon checking into a hotel, place your luggage in the middle of the room or on the bathroom floor.
Begin your inspection process by removing the bedspread and checking the mattress for any sign of rust-colored spots or pepper-like stains and bed bug skins.
Although these bugs are named bedbugs, they don’t hide in just the bed; tiny cracks on the furniture could also hide them while they await their next victims. Use a pocket-sized flashlight for hunting these creatures down and if anyone is found, change your hotel room immediately.
After spotting any bug, report to the manager immediately before changing. When changing a room, make sure not to switch to a room opposite, directly above or below that room, as these bugs can travel through wall sockets or even carts for housekeeping.
Protect your suitcase by covering it with a plastic trash bag while at the hotel to repel these bugs and stop them from residing in your suitcase while residing at the hotel.
Do not place your luggage in luggage racks with cracks or hollow legs where the bugs could hide to prevent pest infestation. The safest place to place your luggage is in the middle of a tiled floor.
