As the world starts to open up again, it’s going to be tempting to travel in ways that you’ve never traveled before. Some are expecting a massive, never-before-seen amount of travel, as people try to catch up on missed adventures, and shake off the dust they’ve gathered being at home.
But as you travel, one thing to watch out for is bed bugs. You don’t hear quite as much about bed bugs these days, since they are most commonly spread from travel. But it’s likely that there could be a huge resurgence one people start vacationing again, and you’ll want to take special care to make sure you do not bring them home with you.
How to Watch Out for Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are spectacular hiders, capable of fitting in spaces so small that you may never know they’re there until you have a serious infestation. So, when traveling, make sure you pay attention to signs that the place you’re staying at could have bed bugs. These include:
- Unexplained “dirt” on sheets, around baseboards, or under the mattress.
- Blood stains on a sheet or pillow case.
- Shed skins or what look like miniature egg shells.
Of course, you should also pay attention to any unexplained bites. If you wake up with often multiple bites, there’s a chance you were exposed to bed bug infestations. It’s also important not to assume that because a place is nice or expensive that it does not have bed bugs. Bed bugs do not care about cleanliness and may be found at 5 star resorts, easily hiding from cleaning staff.
