When it comes to bed bugs, the best defense is a good offense, and these tips will help you avoid bringing home any stowaways from your summer vacation or business trip.

Know your enemy-Bed bugs are tiny insects approximately ⅛” in size, and they infest places where large numbers of people sleep. You’re just as likely to encounter bed bugs at luxury hotels as at bargain-priced accommodations, and they’re excellent hiders that can survive for weeks without food and water. Be sure to pull back the corner of your bed linens at check-in and look for evidence of bed bug activity (You’re more likely to see bloodstains than bugs). If you see bloodstains, ask for a different room or seek alternate accommodations.

Keep your luggage off the floor-Bed bugs can’t fly and are poor climbers, but they love to stow away in luggage. Keep your suitcases on the luggage rack during your stay, and hang your dirty clothing up in a plastic laundry bag. Carefully Inspect the corners of your luggage before you start packing up to ensure you don’t have any unwanted passengers.

Do laundry as soon as you get home-Wash everything you took with you in the hottest water possible, whether you wore it or not. Be sure to also inspect the corners of your suitcases one final time before you put them away.
