Everyone is traveling and when you travel, you often have to stay in hotels. This creates serious problems in the spread of bed bugs worldwide as there are bed bugs in hotels. When just one hotel becomes infested with bed bugs, everyone who stays at that hotel is at risk of taking bed bugs away with them.
Even if you were fortunate enough not to have suffered bed bug bites during your stay, bed bugs and bed bug eggs may be on your clothes and your luggage, and you’re giving them that free ride into your home or wherever you’re staying at next.
Although more and more hotels are recognizing the seriousness of bed bug infestations by hiring exterminators and spraying their rooms regularly, some infestations may still escape their attention or the hotel may be so badly managed that they just don’t care about your comfort and well-being.
