Travel Tips for Avoiding Bed Bugs
Friday, 27 August 2010
Bed bugs were a pest that was all but eliminated from countries in the developed world in the 1940s, but which are now making a comeback. This is due to the large amount of international travel, which sees people bringing these little critters back in their luggage.

Co-owner of Top Dog Scent Detection, Seth Tokson, says that people can avoid bringing bed bugs home if they take a few precautions when they arrive at their destination and before before they return home from their trip. The first of these is to check out the hotel room as soon as they arrive, looking over the bed and nightstand for any signs of bed bugs or their droppings. All toiletries should be kept in a sealed ziplock bag all the time they are not in use.

When it is time to pack up for home, travelers should put all their clothes in a clean black garbage bag before they put them in the suitcase. Once home, leave the suitcase outside until it is fully inspected and put the clothes directly into the dryer for a hot spin. This will kill any bed bugs that have hitched a ride. For those that would like to have help, Top Dog Scent Detection has a dog professionally trained to detect the scent of bed bugs. For more information check out
