Have you ever heard of the pesticide DDT? It was used a lot to kill off bed bugs in the past, but that was before the serious health effects it had for humans were known. After DDT was banned, bed bugs made a strong comeback, and now they are very proliferant. Many hotels and apartment complexes are in a constant battle against bed bugs, and with modern travel, they are spreading easier than ever.

Whenever you stay at a hotel, you need to make sure that you do not take any uninvited guests with you back home. Before settling in, leave your bags at the door and investigate your bed closely. Pulling at the seams of your bed underneath the sheets, you will be able to see if there are bed bugs clustered there. Pull back the sheets all the way to see if there are any signs of bed bugs. You will often be able to spot them against the white background. Check the seams on the couch as well.
