Sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs bite

I recall some time the end of last year that there was an uproar over bed bugs in high end hotels in New York. I recall a couple of videos circulating on youtube where hotel guests showed the extent of the infestation in the hotel room that they were checked into.

Well, today I chanced upon this video which provides a guide to travellers on how to check for these pesky critters. Click here for the video.

I recall many years ago, that my bed was infested with bed bugs. My grandma had picked up a spare mattress and placed it under mine. During the weeks in which I slept on the bed, I got bitten badly! At first I could not understand what it was and thought I might have contracted Shingles! These terrible critters are adept at hiding that you will not easily see them!

From the video, I learned that it is probably best to leave your luggage at the door. Even the luggage rack cannot be spared from checks! I would not leave my luggage in the bathroom or tub though… but precautions are necessary to assure a bug free holiday!
