3 Ways to Avoid Bringing Home Bedbugs on Your Travels, Hebron, Kentucky

Bedbugs are persistent little pests that infest homes by hitching a ride on luggage, clothing, or furniture. To avoid problems, the experts at Select Pest Control recommend taking additional precautions when traveling. Serving clients throughout the Cincinnati area, these bedbug extermination pros say taking a few basic steps can mean the difference between living in comfort and having to call an exterminator.

3 Tips for Avoiding Bedbugs When Traveling

1. Check Closely

This may be a simple step, but it’s an incredibly important one. When packing up after a vacation, many people are in a hurry. They don’t leave enough time to inspect their luggage for bugs before checking out of the hotel. The next time you’re on a trip, set aside time before you leave to examine your clothes and bags thoroughly.

2. Use Extra Bags

Bedbugs Cincinnati OHIf you’re not confident the place you’ll be staying in is free of bedbugs, pack your clothes and other belongings in plastic bags before putting them in your suitcase. Keep items bagged until you need to use them, instead of packing them into the drawers and cabinets in your hotel room. This will limit their exposure to pests.

3. Do Laundry Soon

As soon as you get home, store your luggage in the garage and launder your clothes immediately. While you’re washing your garments, check your luggage once again for signs of bugs. Once you’re sure you don’t have a problem, you can bring the suitcases back into your house.

If you do suspect you have a bedbug problem, it’s time to call in the professionals.
