Bed bugs are small, flat, reddish brown insects that come out of their nests at night to feed on humans and other mammals' blood. After thought to be nearly extinct for the past five decades, bed bug infestations are dramatically on the rise, popping up in Sherwood Forest as well as throughout Maryland, the United States and even the entire world!
Bed bugs can easily adapt to new environments, making them proficient travelers, attaching themselves to luggage, backpacks, purses, used furniture and even people. Bed bugs are known to infest:
Apartments and condos
Hotels, motels and inns
Trains, buses and other forms of public transportation
When traveling this summer, you should take a few precautions to eliminate the possibility of bringing these bothersome pests home with you. If traveling on public transportation, keep your bags in your lap and check for signs of bed bugs. When arriving at your lodging destination, inspect the room by looking in crevices of the mattress and box spring, behind pictures and wall hangings, inside or along seams of upholstered furniture and along baseboards. While staying in the hotel room, the best place to store your luggage to avoid bed bugs is to place it and other bags in the bathtub. Once you have returned home, immediately wash all the clothing in your luggage in the hottest water possible and thoroughly inspect your luggage before you bring it in your home. It is also wise to inspect your personal belongings for bed bugs that may have stowed away inside alarm clocks, inside toiletry kits and inside hair dryers.
