People often associate bed bugs with dirtiness; this is far from true. Bed bugs do not discriminate and can often be found in 4-5 star accommodation anywhere around the world. If you’re sleeping somewhere other than home- beware, bed bugs are on the rise. Hotels/motels are some of their favourite hangouts.

Here are some tips that may make you sleep better next time you stay away from home:

Travel and bed bugs
  • Do not put your luggage on the floor or beds. Use the suitcase rack normally provided, alternatively, place luggage in the bathroom until you have had a close inspection of the room.

  • Have a look around the bed area for spot marks. This is old blood passed by the bed bugs.

  • Lift the sheets away from the mattress at the corners and fold back the piping around the mattress and headboard.

  • For extra protection, it is a good idea to have all suitcase items encased in a plastic suitcase inside your luggage.

  • Check around curtains, wall hangings such as paintings and mirrors, lampshades and alarm clocks.

  • If you find any spotting or other signs of bed bugs, remove yourself and your bags immediately from the room. Report your finding to hotel management and request another room a couple of levels away. Remember, the motel/hotel may not know that they have bed bugs as they are very good at staying out of view.

  • Keep an eye out for bite marks on your body. These are often found on arms but may also be found on any other part of your body. A tell-tale sign that bed bugs are biting is that the bites are in an almost straight line down. Unlike any other type of insects, bed bugs create an almost straight line bite mark.
