Between Thanksgiving week and the first week of the New Year, a lot of people are travelling. In fact, AAA predicts one in three will travel over the holiday season this year, breaking the record from each of the previous two years. In case you were wondering, December 20th looks like the worst day to begin your cross country jaunt. Some people are doing all the driving in a day, but a majority will be flying, taking a train, or staying in a hotel at some point along their journey. These are all places where bedbugs can hibernate until they find a source of food and follow it home.
Luckily, there’s a new weapon in the search for bedbugs—dogs. Dogs can be trained to use their acute sense of smell to ferret out drugs, bombs, dead bodies, and now, bedbugs! These canine exterminators are making waves because they can smell the bugs— or their leave behinds— faster than a human eye can detect them. The dogs are being trained and tested and are available most everywhere across the country. So, let’s go over what you can look out for to avoid a bedbug infestation.
It’s more difficult sometimes to check these areas, but look at the cushions and seams for live bedbugs and the dark reddish brown stains they leave behind. You can also invest in a special seat cover for your traveling needs.
Be sure to wash all of your laundry as soon as you get back. As we’ve noted before, bed bugs love to snuggle down into dirty laundry. Check your suitcases for infestation. And if you do discover an infestation has followed you home, call a professional, right away! Bedbugs are really difficult to get rid of and you need someone who’s properly trained to handle them.
