  1. Inspect – Before going to sleep in any foreign place make sure you inspect the bed or areas around the bed for bed bugs. Some common areas that bed bugs are found around the home include headboards, nightstands, and mattress shams. If you spot any blood spots that is a dead giveaway that bed bugs are present, and you should steer clear!
  2. Prepare – Often suitcases are the most vulnerable to bed bugs hitching a ride on them. One way that you can combat this is wrap your suitcase in a trash bag, or any kind of plastic to make sure not unwanted hitchhikers attach themselves.
