It might be something you wouldn’t want to read as your packing right now for your trip to Hawaii, but the likelihood you spot bed bugs vacationing in your room before you might be pretty high. Considering that bed bugs are mostly found at the seams at your mattress. Apart from these insects being metaphorical bed-burritos that like to nest and feed at the very same spot you’re having your good night sleep in, it might be a good idea to scope out the place yourself to ensure that you have indeed made the right choice before waking up to surprises from bed bug bites. Bed bugs are flightless insects that can only travel a certain distance. For a longer road trip bed bugs travel through secondary means, meaning that they usually hitch hike over to the next room or country for that matter by occupying your second-hand furniture and even in your articles of clothing or by getting in your suit case that you just stowed away for your next morning flight.
If you suspect bed bug bites or bed bug presence, do not hesitate to contact Bed Bug Control Hamilton for a complete bed bug eradication.
Whether bed bugs are common in hotels depends strictly on the house keeping routine your hotel undertakes and how rigorous the cleaning is. Bed begs have a liking to dark and warm places that include any crevices and cracks in flooring, walls, furniture, and ,as mentioned before, can make their way into suitcases if the right preventive measures are not taken. There is no 100% guarantee that prevention truly helps as bed bugs are feisty little critters who measure up to 4mm in length which makes detection in the firs place as hard task to do. The best way to deal with this when you arrive and to make sure you haven’t given these tiny hitchhikers the trip of a lifetime is to unpack in elevated areas in your hotel, preferably smooth surfaces such as a bathroom countertop or unpack on top of other pieces of luggage. Unfortunately there are limited means of checking whether you have bed bugs present but you can start from checking by pulling your sheets away, under the mattress for brown smudges, or spots, behind wall frames, and for any possible crack. If you do have the feeling that you have bed bugs do not hesitate to bring it to the staff’s attention as there are certain protocols and procedures put into place to assure you a comfortable stay at the hotel. More than often, certain hotels will offer you to wash your clothes as courtesy and to prevent a bed bug infestation. If offered to relocate do not accept any room above or below the hotel room as bed bugs might have found entry holes inside these rooms.
Even though the means to do something about this issue remain limited when you’re vacationing abroad, but certainly not when you’re back home. To resolve issues when you’re back home consider contacting a professional pest control company near you.
