What is the worst thing about winter? No, it is not the cold. It is not that you can get cabin fever. It is keeping the house clean due to wet boots and salt.
There is a solution to this problem. First, have a mat directly inside the common entry. Second, designate an area close to the entry to keep the wet boots/shoes.
Just read in The Plain Dealer today that bed bugs were discovered in the Justice Center. The affected areas were treated and workers were advised how to prevent and eradicate the pests if discovered in their homes.
When traveling, DO NOT PUT SUITCASE ON FLOOR OR BEDS. DO NOT PUT CLOTHES IN THE HOTEL ROOM DRAWERS. It is better to put the suitcase on a luggage rack. If there are not luggage racks available, then put suitcase in the bathtub. Most people find bed bugs in their home after coming home from a trip.
