Let’s talk about luggage. When you are at the airport
, if possible, keep your carry-ons and other bags on your lap. When you’re at a hotel or rental, before you begin your inspection, keep your luggage in the bathroom or high above the ground. When you’ve finished your trip and have returned home, immediately throw all your clothes into the washing machine on the highest setting if possible. Then take a flashlight and check your luggage and all the compartments in them for any bed bugs. Typically speaking, bed bugs won’t attach themselves to the clothes you are wearing, but they will jump at any opportunity to hitch a ride to your home.
