How to Prevent a Bed Bug Infestation

Bed bug infestations are on the rise, mainly due to the increase of world travel.

How to Deter Bed Bugs From Your Premises

Things you can do to prevent inviting bed bugs onto your premises.

  • Be cautious when travelling as bed bugs can crawl onto your belongings in hotel rooms, so inspect the hotel room thoroughly before unpacking your luggage. It’s advisable to keep your luggage away from the bed and off the floor so that they cannot use your belongings as a means of transport!
  • When buying or borrowing second-hand furniture inspect it carefully before bringing it home. Bed bugs are experts at hiding in furniture and can easily be missed.
