Your Health and Bed Bugs

 

Bedbugs are difficult to get rid of and can go for months without eating. Don’t spray insect repellent or other pesticides on your luggage or clothing. They aren’t effective against bed bugs, and they may pose health hazards. Don't throw your dirty clothes directly back into your suitcase.  Be sure you put them into re-sealable plastic bags or washable mesh bags before you put them in.
