Bed Bug Travel Tips Part II

Inspecting Your Room:
  • When entering your room, place bags in the middle of the room away from beds, furniture or walls. Make sure zippers on your bags are closed.
  • Next using your flashlight and wearing your disposable gloves perform the room inspection.
  • You are looking for visible evidence like shed skins, spotting(excreted blood which appears as dark spots) and actual bed bugs.
  • Pull back linens from bed slowly and look for visible evidence. Look behind the mattress and box spring edges for bed bug signs . Bed bugs like to hide underneath of these edges and you should pay particular attention to the 4 corners of the bed. If the bed has a dust cover, pull back dust cover to inspect behind it.
  • If you are physically able, get on the floor to inspect the underneath of the box spring.
  • Check upholstered furniture under the corners and seams in the fabric, paying special attention to the fabric skirts along the bottom and the fabric folds along the shoulder of the furniture.
  • Just because no evidence is found does not indicate that no bed bugs are present, but by completing this inspection the likelihood is greatly reduced.
