Bed bugs are common place in hotels and once you pick a couple on your way out, then it can raise hell in your house.
Here are 7 steps to check your hotel room before choosing to stay there. Firstly, do not enter the room with your baggage. Second, check out every layer of the bedding and look for bugs, their eggs or shedding at the seams, edges and folds. Do nor forget to check the box spring.
Head board is another favorite spot for the bed bugs so lift it or pass a piece of paper behind. Check the night stand, shelves and ironing board. Check the sofas and chairs with special attention to the seams.
If you happen to find bed bugs in the room allotted to you, then opt for another hotel or at least ask to look at another room in the same hotel.
