The Avid Traveler, a Target- Bed Bug Travel Tips

A quick history lesson about bed bugs if you will….

Back in the 1940’s, Bed Bugs were in fact eradicated from the United States. That’s right. Gone, 100% gone! Due to the advancement of aviation, the development of the FAA, increased overseas travel and military presence, the bugs slowly but strongly came back to the United States.

You may be thinking, “Well that makes sense, but why am I a target as a traveler? Are the bugs not waiting for me at home in my bed, if at all?” It is very possible, yes. Why you are a higher potential target as a traveler is caused by; the luggage and tight cloth corners of backpacks themselves, visiting demographic areas where bed bugs are more popular and bringing them home, and mainly because of the sleeper frequency of your visits. This means, that there has been a large number of people who have stayed in that very room or bed.
