Don’t Let Bed Bugs Hitch a Ride During Your Travels —

Houston pest control professionals report that bed bug infestations  are on the rise in Texas and in other areas throughout the United States.

These tiny bloodsucking creatures have been around for centuries and were nearly eradicated in the United States in the 1940’s with the help of powerful pesticides such as DDT.

Many scientists believe that the 1970’s ban of DDT, the current lack of education about the bugs, and the ease of global travel has brought bed bug infestations back to life with a vengeance.

Pest control companies in Houston say that it’s quite easy to pick up bed bugs in most any place that you frequent. Bed bugs are sneaky and like to hide in tiny cracks and crevices and upholstered items.

Despite their name, you won’t always find them in a bed. Bed bugs can get transported via luggage, purses, backpacks, used furniture and even within some one’s clothing.  So, there are numerous ways they can be relocated and spread to unsuspecting locations.

Many office buildings, buses, airplanes, schools, hospitals, libraries, retail stores, college dorms, courthouses, theaters, and jails have had trouble with bed bugs over the past few years.

Bed bugs cross all socio-economic lines. Sanitation is not a contributing factor in the presence of bed bugs. They do not eat anything but blood as a food source.

Because of the constant change-over of guests, bed bug infestations have been a huge problem in hotels throughout the United States and abroad. Here are some tips to help you avoid bed bugs in hotels while you travel…

Bed Bug Travel Tips:

Immediately upon arrival, place your luggage in the bathtub. Bed bugs have claws that are used to grab rough surfaces so they are not able to crawl on slick surfaces.

Inspect all areas of the hotel room. (Pack a flashlight) Look for bed bugs, fecal matter, or their skins along floorboards, baseboards, in curtains, in nightstands, in dressers, behind the headboard, behind pictures, under lamps, and the entire bed…all the way down to the mattress.

Houston pest control professionals say that you should vacate the room and report your findings to management if you locate any evidence of bed bugs while you are traveling.
