Why Worry About Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small insects that feed on human blood while you sleep. They are notorious for their ability to hide in luggage, clothing, and bedding, making them easy to bring home after traveling. Unfortunately, bed bugs can cause itchy bites and severe discomfort. In some cases, they can also lead to allergic reactions.

Before you settle into your accommodation, it’s essential to check for signs of bed bugs:

  1. Bite Marks: Small, red, itchy bites on your skin.
  2. Blood Stains: Tiny blood stains on your sheets or mattress.
  3. Fecal Spots: Dark spots or streaks on your bedding or walls.
  4. Musty Odor: A strong, unpleasant odor in the room.
