PRLog (Press Release) - Jun. 14, 2012 - Bed bugs are seed size insects that feast on the blood of hapless sleepers. The results of the bites are skin rashes that can be extremely itchy.

In the 1950s, the populations of bed bugs were believed to be entirely eradicated using very strong pesticides such as DDT. However due to governmental ban on the same pesticides that were once used to eradicate them, the bugs are now back infesting homes, hotels, schools, theaters, shopping centers and offices.

If one is planning on traveling for a holiday or business trip, it is best to avoid coming into contact with these pests as getting rid of bed bugs can be labor, monetary and time intensive. Therefore prevention is always the best medicine. The following are some useful tips that one can use to prevent bringing bed bugs home while traveling:

As their name suggests, bed bugs reside in or around the beds while their victims sleep. Therefore, when one checks into a hotel room, place all belonging such as bags away from the bed. Also avoid tossing yourself on the bed as soon as you enter your room. Remove all beddings and inspect the bed especially the seams of the mattress, box spring and headboard to check for any tell-tale signs of bed bugs. Signs may include live or dead bugs, tiny brown spots that look like bloodstains on the mattress or insect waste.

In the event that you find signs of a bed bug infestation, notify the hotel management about the issue and request for a change of room or look for a another hotel.

If you suspect that bed bugs are present, ensure that your belongings and the clothes are tightly sealed in zip lock bags. This step aids to prevent bed bugs from hiding inside the items and clothes as well as making it difficult for the bugs to escape and easier to spot so preventive steps can be taken to get rid of them when you get home.

Once home, remove all items from the bags in the bathroom. Launder all clothing in hot water and dry them on the highest recommended setting. At the same time, inspect and vacuum all luggage and bags.
