Will Bed Bugs Travel On Me?
Bed bugs normally will not travel on your skin. They can actually feed off of you without having to walk on your skin at all. You can think of bed bugs as shy because right after feeding they will quickly run off of the skin and back into hiding.
Leah R. said, “Travel? I guess I’ve never considered where bed bugs come from. It makes sense. I just hate the thought of sleeping other places to begin with. Add bed bugs on top of that, and I’ll never go anywhere again. Yuck.”
Diane B. writes, “People that travel often are more likely to unknowingly carrying them home with them. Bed bugs travel surprisingly well! They can stow away in luggage and even clothing. Bed bugs can be found anywhere, so no one country is safer from bed bugs than another.”
Tes F. from San Antonio, TX writes, ” Yes, something else to worry about when we go on vacation. I’m packing the dead bed bug spray. I can spray it on the beds and even my luggage. I know it’s safe, and even better I know it works!”
Katie said, “You just have to know what to look for and what do to keep from spreading them or taking them home with you. They’re becoming more common so chances are you’ll run into them sooner or later if you travel at all. It’s better to arm your self with knowledge to prevent yourself from becoming a victim!”
What can you do to avoid traveling on your holidays?
Unfortunately, apart from checking the bed linen, mattress, box springs, bed frames, behind the bed’s headboard, any upholstered furniture, and along the baseboards in your room, that’s about all you can do.
Bed bugs are a universal problem and can be found in motels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, hotels, pod hotels, resorts, hospitals, airplanes, trains, buses, cabs, cruise ships, etc. These little blood suckers can be found near any readily available sources of blood, like tired travelers. Bed bugs can even hitch a ride home with you, turning your home sweet home into a living hell.
