Bed bugs are a pest that many travelers are quite familiar with. These pests are well known hitchhikers and can travel inside luggage as well as on clothing. If you are traveling in the great state of Florida for an upcoming business trip, conference, vacation or you are just heading back to school, you need to be aware that bed bugs are out there and can be easily picked up by the unsuspecting traveler. What can you do to prevent bed bugs and bed bug eggs from coming home with you after your next trip? Here are some tips from the professionals of pest control in Jacksonville at McCall Service for bed bug prevention.
Never set your handbag or luggage on the floor or the seat next to you in public transportation. Keep your belongings in your lap to help prevent picking up bed bugs.
When staying in a hotel, do some research first. Check out the bed bug registry to make sure that the hotel you are planning to stay at has not had any recent bed bug sightings.
Before you enter your hotel room, become a bed bug detective. Leaving your belongings in the hallway or with a bellhop, inspect the room carefully for signs of bed bugs. These can include red or brown spots on bed linens, cast bed bug skins around beds or areas where carpeting meets the wall and in a large infestation, a musty odor can be detected.
When you return from your trip, carefully inspect your luggage for bed bugs before bringing into the house. If you suspect bed bugs, contact the pros at McCall Service for information on our bed bug home heat treatment to eliminate these pests in your luggage before they have a chance to spread to your home.
