Prevention When Staying Overnight
Staying overnight in a infested room is the most common way of introducing bed bugs into your home. If you follow these suggestions, your chance of bringing bed bugs home with you will be greatly reduced.
When staying overnight in a room, it is important to thoroughly inspect rooms before settling into them. These rooms include hotel and motels, dorm rooms, or camp rooms. Pull back sheets and carefully inspect mattresses particularly at seams and corners. Inspect the entire room before unpacking . If you see any signs of bed bugs remove your belonging and request another room. Be sure the new room is not adjacent to or directly above or below the infected room. When returning home inspect all luggage before bringing in into your house and wash all clothes, worn and unworn, in hot water before putting them away.
