The presence of five or another number of stars in the designation of the hotel does not guarantee the absence of bed bugs in the room…

How to find bed bugs in the hotel before they find you
Just because the hotel staff is not able to meticulously check every visitor. But it is tourists – the main carrier of this infection on the planet. Most, unknowingly, carry along with their Luggage, clothes and Souvenirs, occupation troops of tiny parasites. Don’t you want to be fodder? Then remove the embarrassment and doubt and get to the strange at first glance procedures.

Tourists – the main carrier of this infection on the planet
“Don’t be afraid to offend the hotel staff,” says London exterminator Mario Stanchev harshly. “Better get them to work and find you a Laundry room where you can wash your clothes at high temperature.” Use it at every opportunity, and in between store clothes in closed bags. Luggage should be placed in the bathroom or shower in your room. There are slippery walls, bedbugs will be difficult to get to things. In extreme cases, leave bags on the floor with tiles and not in the closet – if whoever lived here before you accidentally brought a bed bug in the locations of things they will live, most likely.

When you check into the room do not rush to lay things out, first armed with a flashlight and check the bed. Do not be confused by fresh starched sheets, it is better to turn the mattress and carefully examine the seams on the fabric. The same goes for sofas, couches, decorative pillows on them, chairs and chairs – a cunning bug can be anywhere. Does the room have carpet on the floor? And do not be lazy to look under it! Suddenly there waiting for a dreadful surprise?

Arm yourself with a flashlight and check the bed
Perhaps worst of all, if you find traces of bedbugs on the mattress, but the most suspicious little living creatures. It is very likely that insects live inside this object, crawling out at night to hunt for warm human blood. Here it is easier to completely replace the mattress than trying to build barriers. And you have the right to demand this from the hotel administration, and if they go to refuse – move out of this institution and do not risk your health and comfort.

When you leave the hotel, take all the clothes to the dry cleaner, so as not to carry a random bedbug on the plane. However, it can make your careless neighbors in the cabin, so when you return home do not rush to go inside and bring bags. First find an empty flat place, without carpet or other covering. Wet him. And shake things out there, simultaneously examining them. If the bug rushes to flee, on a wet surface will not go far and will not be able to hide in your home.

Hand over all the clothes to the dry cleaner, so as not to carry a random bedbug on the plane
Bedbugs are so small and harmful that they can hide in a zipper on clothes, in the cover of your smartphone, inside a cosmetic bag, and they just love children’s toys. So if the bite still itches, and the desire for revenge or fear, haunt, and you need to decontaminate the ambulance on the way. Wash everything you can at maximum temperature. And what you can not, like a tablet or a souvenir from paper – send it to the freezer, where you leave for a few days at a temperature of-5ºC or below.

So, we learned that bugs are killed by heat or cold. But from the dead also better to get rid of, what is the best regular vacuum cleaner. Just apply it to those things that are not usually vacuumed. The bag with the collected dust and the remains of parasites immediately remove from the house! And in General, the care of hygiene and sanitary condition of housing is the best protection. And on vacation, do not hesitate to contact a doctor even with the appearance of a small blister or itchy spot, because it may be that the presence of bed bugs in the hotel no one suspects.
