Bed bugs can be a real nightmare. They might look tiny but can make a grown a** men cry, for real. While we’re at home, we make sure bed bugs don’t linger around. And when we find one, we immediately get some pest-control done. But what if that option is not possible? What if you find bed bugs at your stay while you’re traveling? It has the potential to not just ruin your stay and vacation but come back home and ruin your stay home too.
Doesn’t sound like a good idea right? While you cannot really avoid landing up at a place infested with bed bugs, you definitely can do something about it to avoid any more damage. Although every place takes good measures to not let bed bugs breed in their property, these little demons still find their way in sometimes. As unfortunate this may seem, make sure you alarm the management about this ‘situation’ happening in their room. Ask for a room change, but make sure you check the new room too.
Bed bugs bite like angry little demons. The rash is so bad, you cannot help but scratch it. It is a very strong urge to resist, but the truth is, scratching only makes it worse. It can lead to infections and become an issue that will stick to you for a much longer duration. Instead, wash it with water and soap. Then apply antihistamine cream to it and let it do its work.
They spread like fire and hide like spies. So you need to clean everything that you have carried for the trip. Clothes, shoes, sheets, towels, anything, and everything! To do this, make sure you pack them in a plastic bag that is sealed as your life depends on it. Carefully unpack and put it in the washing machine and dry it in the scorching heat.
But this one is the most important part because you’re going to use the bag for the whole trip. If you don’t treat it, you might carry the bed bugs to the next place you stay and the cycle becomes never-ending. Bed bugs can be very sneaky and there are high chances the other rooms are invaded by them too. A much better option is to look for some other place to stay and ask for a refund.
