Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016 at 2:37 pm.
We know summer has wrapped up, but if you find yourself traveling for school activities or simply to enjoy the fall colors, there are pests waiting to hitch a ride with you! If you’ve read our previous blogs, you know we’re talking about bedbugs. Bedbugs are becoming more and more prevalent in the United States, and it’s essential to be on your guard if you’re staying in hotels. In our last blog, we talked about checking with your hotel to see what they do about bedbugs and having a plan for your clothing when you get home. Today, we have two more important tips.
Carefully check out reviews
- You can go to the Bed Bug Registry, Yelp, and Tip Advisor to access insights on whether or not your lodging has bed bugs. The key is to take everything you read with a piece of salt. Sometimes, competing hotels or disgruntled employees go on these rating sites and lie in order to damage reputations. Additionally, if a hotel has a problem, chances are good they immediately addressed it.
Watch for bites
- If you brought bed bugs home with you, sometimes bites are the first indicator. The bugs tend to bite three times in a line called “breakfast, lunch, and dinner.” Keep in mind that bites don’t always indicate an infestation; they simply mean you should call our insect pest control company for a professional inspection.
