One of the possible problems you can bring home after a trip is bugs. Many people wonder how this is possible. Well, in general you can’t approach them while traveling, but when you sleep in a hotel, it’s possible for them to get into your luggage. Knowing this we decided to discuss how you can prevent bringing bugs home after a trip in the next few paragraphs. It’s always nice to prevent these bugs, so let’s see what we can do.
The first thing you need to do when entering your hotel room is to bring the clothes in the bathroom or leave them in your car, if possible. The fact is that many people make the mistake and collapse without first checking the room or putting the luggage in the bed and then doing the inspection. Bugs get in your way. When you enter the room check if the hygiene is at proper levels. After that, make a visual check of the traces of bed bugs around the beds and sofas and other furniture in the room. If you notice a single trace of bed bugs, then ask for another room. And inspect this room as well. It’s good to know that bugs are present in well-known hotels and not just in convenient motels.
After inspecting the room you are free to leave. However, don’t put things on the bed or sofa. Use a table instead. Always carry your things in suitcases, avoid using bags made of fabrics. You can also use pockets, which can be tightly closed either with a zipper or with a locking system. If you use bags, make sure they can be washed in hot water since they kill bugs effectively.
If you haven’t had any problems with bugs, and you’re at home, your work on bug bed prevention isn’t over. You should check your things before you bring them because bed bugs are already in your bags. This will help you avoid bug infestation in your home, and possible bug bites. Just wash all your things in hot water, and, if there have been any bugs, you can be sure they are removed.
Another useful tip is to search the Internet and see if anyone has had a problem with the bed bug in the hotel you intend to stay at. After you do all we can say is – have a nice trip!
