Education of general public, especially travelers, is essential to bed bug prevention. Bed bugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. Bed bugs do not fly, but they can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. They are more of a nuisance than anything else. Below are some tips that can help prevent bed bug bites:
Wash all bedding regularly in hot water. Use extra hot dryer settings for drying.
Vacuum floors and mattresses regularly.
Use a mattress encasement for your mattress so that bedbugs canít escape.
Check any used furniture or mattresses for bed bugs.
Bug sprays can be effective at preventing and eradicating bed bug infestations.
If you are traveling then be aware that hotel or motel furniture can be full of bug infestations. Check any bedbug hotel registries to see if your hotel has been infested at any point within that last couple of weeks.
Once you arrive, do an inspection of your hotel room. Check under the bed sheets and box springs for pepper-like stains that may be evidence of bed bug activity.
Keep your entire luggage off the floors.
