You Want Bedbugs? This Is How You Get Bedbugs

You Want Bedbugs? This Is How You Get Bedbugs
Ryan Boyd

According to an article in Newsweek, a recent study has shown that bed bugs are twice as likely to stow way in a traveler’s luggage when dirty laundry is left out in the open, even without a clearly distinguishable human host present.

The study notes that “travel in the seams and folds of luggage, overnight bags, folded clothes, bedding, furniture, and anywhere else where they can hide.”

    had them twice, horrible experience which required a doctor visit to relieve the itching. Andddd, that lasted for weeks. I, now check the bed carefully for signs of infestation. Big one being, blood spots on the mattress. Yes, I looked after the first time I woke up, felt itchy and went to the bathroom in the middle of the night to pee. Was shocked at the dozens and dozens of bites, everywhere when I turned on the lights. Left my luggage outside when I got home, too freaked to bring it inside. Ended up throwing it away. You get thsse buggers, your hotel stay will never be the same. I also pull the bed away from the wall if I can, thinking they may hide behind the headboard. CHECK YOUR HOTEL ROOMS! Its only a matter of time.
