Bed bug population numbers reach their highest during the summer vacation months partly due to the warmer temperatures speeding up the development process, scientists have found. This means more of them are around to hitch a ride with unsuspecting vacationers during trips. However, accidentally picking up bed bugs isn’t just a summertime concern.
Depending on when and where you are traveling, you may encounter crowds of people on cramped flights with luggage that gets piled together, stays at hotels or condos that people from all over the world are visiting also, so it isn’t a real coincidence that bed bug populations thrive.
Bed Bugs: Fast Facts
Bed bugs love to hide in tight, cool spaces like inseams and crevices in mattresses and box springs, but if there is a new hiding spot available, like a suitcase or backpack, they will happily creep their way into it.
Bed bugs can go for months without a meal, so they can lurk in their hiding spots and wait for the prime opportunity to begin a new infestation.
They’re also completely in-discriminant of cleanliness. So although they thrive better in clutter due to more hiding places, they have no problem infesting 5-star hotels!
Bed bugs are developing a pesticide resistance, and scientists are now recommending more all-natural alternatives to combat the critters.
The bottom line comes down to this; Are bed bugs a legitimate concern to have while preparing to travel (and possibly enjoy some much-needed downtime)?
