It’s vacation season, and whether you’re traveling across the world or just to the nearest beach, there’s a chance you could bring unwanted pests back home with you. From mosquitoes to roaches to the dreaded bedbug, pests can certainly put a damper on your R&R!
- Inspect Your Surroundings – Upon arriving at your hotel, timeshare, or Airbnb, carefully looking around for signs of pests. Pay special attention to mattresses, rugs, and bedding. Signs of bed bugs include small tan moltings and tiny black spots on fabric.
- Keep Your Suitcase Away From Furniture – Try to keep your suitcase away from the bed, couch, and other pieces of upholstered furniture. Unpack your suitcase and store it in a non-living space like a laundry room. If you must store it nearby, tie it up in a garbage bag to prevent pests from getting inside.
- Check Your Skin – Bed bugs leave behind bites and welts. If you see signs of this on your skin, it’s a good indication that your booking has bedbugs.
Obviously you’ll want to keep pests from getting into your luggage in the first place by taking measures like storing your suitcase off the ground, booking a reputable hotel, and checking for signs of bed bugs before bringing your luggage into the room. However, sometimes even with the best prevention, you can still end up bringing home unwanted stowaways. If that happens, don’t panic! We can help you kick those uninvited guests to the curb.
