BBB: BED BUGS ON VACATION - David Smitherman with the Better Business Bureau joined us with some pointers to protect yourself and your family from bed bugs when you go on vacation! In a recent survey, the National Pest Management Association http://www.pestworld.org (NPMA) found that 75% of pest control professionals have encountered infestations of bed bugs in hotels and motels. Just because the room looks nice doesn't mean there's not a creepy crawler waiting for you in bed. Take the time to ensure that your hotel room is bug free before you settle in. BBB and the NPMA recommend the following tips to avoid bed bugs when traveling: Inspect the room before settling in. If you do need to change rooms, be sure that you do not move to a room adjacent and/or directly above/below the suspected infestation. Safeguard your belongings. Clean and wash your luggage and clothing immediately upon your return. For a closer look at bed bugs, and more ways to protect against them, visit AllThingsBedBugs.org.
