At least you don't have to worry about catching the Zika virus like with mosquitoes. But bed bugs pose a worrisome side effect, bites, welts, and incessant scratching. We also have a travel-sized Bite Relief solution that will ease your scratching.
Here is an easy acronym to remember what to do when you check in to your hotel/motel/Airbnb or even your family's home. SLEEP
Survey the room for any signs of bed bugs. Check out the mattress, seams, headboards, and crevices.
Lift any mattresses, furniture, and other items a bug might want to lay low in.
Elevate your luggage to the bathroom (bed bugs don't like slick areas) before placing it on the dresser or a chair.
Examine your luggage as you pack and unpack when you get home. Even better, bring sealed plastic bags; you can leave your luggage encased while traveling.
Put your clothing in the dryer for at least 15 minutes, on the highest heat, to kill any hitchhikers.
