Bedbugs travel just as much as people do. To make sure none of these blood-sucking pests catch a ride home with you in your luggage, experts advise thoroughly checking your hotel room before you tuck in for the night.
If you stay in a location that has bedbugs, these pests could catch a ride on you or your personal belongings and begin an infestation wherever you go. This includes your home, your car or even another hotel room. If you’re thinking the bed bugs will simply die off in your suitcase, think again. They would need to be in 130 degrees plus for several hours and bedbugs can live for months without access to a food.
