It’s that time of year again!
Holiday parties abound and it’s always nice to visit family and friends. Good company, good food – good times! But, there’s a visitor you don’t want – bed bugs.
They’re just about everywhere now, including the homes of people you visit. Here are some good suggestions on avoiding them tactfully
Bedbug tips when visiting:
- Make sure you encase all your suitcases with large, clear plastic Bug Zip Bags since any size suitcase gives bed bugs a free ride, so protect them all, big and small, carry-on or checked!
- Whether visiting friends, family, hostels or hotels, it is strongly advised that you pack your anti-bed bug encasements, mattress and box spring encasements.. You don’t know what comes in and out of people’s houses, even if you are related to them. Hotels are just as guilty of having bed bug problems. So don’t be a helpless victim, be in control of the situation and come prepared!
- One thing in life is definitely a certainty…laundry. Make sure you bring your anti-bed bug laundry bag with you. Don’t give those blood suckers an excuse or a place to get you!
- Need to rest your feet? Try not to sit on or around beds. Chairs with metal legs are a good idea as they are hard for bed bugs to climb up.
