It seems that people have to learn to be on the defensive when it comes to bedbugs. We have to because once they invade your home, it takes an expert to get rid of them. And it will cost a lot of money.
When traveling, DO NOT put your suitcase on the floor or in the closet. When my husband and I traveled to Nashville last summer, we didn’t even put our clothes in the drawers. If there isn’t a suitcase stand then set it on the table (all hotel rooms usually have a table and chairs).
At home, WASH YOUR SHEETS IN HOT WATER. And dry your them on HIGH HEAT. Only very high temperatures will kill bedbugs.
