The last several years have witnessed a rise in hotels suffering from bed bug infestations. This video explains how you can protect yourself from these small yet annoying insects.
When you arrive at your hotel, keep your luggage in your car until you have performed a thorough room inspection. First, strip your bed of its linens—they are changed daily and may not bear evidence of bed bugs. Next, analyze the headboard and mattress. Do you see insects the size and shape of small apple seeds? If so, your room has a bed bug infestation. In such an event, you might want to switch rooms or hotels to avoid bringing these insects home with you.
