Inspect your personal items before packing and when you unpack

You can only confirm that bed bugs are present by carefully inspecting each item.Pay attention to cracks, crevices, seamsand folds of material.

If you find bugs, then you have to be careful in containing the infestation.

Bed bugs may hitch a ride on clothing, but they are not like lice and will not travel directly on a person.

If you are concerned about bed bugs on clothingremove suspect articles and puttheminto a plastic bag.

If you think there might be bedbugs on your itemsseal everything in plastic bags until they can be laundered, washed by hand, heatedor frozen.

There is no need to throw awayluggage and clothing after discovering an infestation.
