When travelling: To Avoid Bed bugs

When traveling:

  • Use luggage racks to hold your suitcases when packing and unpacking rather than setting your luggage on the bed or floor.
  • Check the mattress and headboard before getting into bed.
  • When you get home, unpack directly into a washing machine. Wash all items showing bed bug stains, and dry on the highest setting for at least 20 minutes. The heat from the dryer kills the bugs.
  • Inspect and then vacuum luggage. Empty the vacuum or seal and dispose of its bag outside of your home after each use.
