Inspect The Mattresses In Hotel Rooms

Most bed bug infestations in the home begin at hotel rooms on vacation. Start the bed bug prevention by inspecting mattresses and bedding for black specks that could indicate bed bug infestations.

Wash All Bedding 

If you’ve traveled with pillows or any form of bedding, it’s important these items are washed the moment you arrive home. This can help eliminate any potential bed bugs that have traveled with you.

Inspect Pet Sleeping Areas

Pets can also bring bed bugs into the home. And so it’s critical to inspect pet sleeping areas for the signs of a bed bug infestation. Remember to react carefully, too, if you spot your beloved pet scratching anxiously over a period of time.

Learn How Bed Bugs Smell

Bed bugs and their remnants leave a musty odor. By recognizing this smell the moment you detect it within the home, you can eliminate the issue and prevent a complete bed bug infestation throughout the property.
