What to do about bedbugs

Posted:

Terminix recommends that travelers check headboards and mattresses for bedbugs and the dark blood spots they leave behind.  Baggage should be stored far from the bed and clothing should be hung rather than placed in hotel drawers or left lying on hotel furniture.

After a trip, people should vacuum suitcases and wash clothes in hot water.

The EPA, which held a summit on the critters in April, warns consumers not to treat the problem on their own or use strong outdoor pesticides to get rid of bedbugs.
