Don't bring bedbugs home with you

Bedbugs are easy to pick up during a vacation if you are not careful and use common sense. Before plopping your suitcase down on the floor or tossing it on the bed, leave them in the hallway and have a look around. Check drawers for bugs, bug pieces, or droppings. Take the bed spread off and look at the sheets. Are there any spots on the sheets? Any blood type smears? Take the sheets away and look at the mattress around the tufts and buttons. Live bugs? Look behind or take the head board off and look at the seams and the sunken screw button. Live bugs or blood spots? Being careful and having an eagle eye can help keep you and your family bug free.
