The holiday season is just around the corner, and everyone is likely making their travel plans. And if you’re like me, I’m sure one thing that’s on your mind is the possibility of getting bed bugs in a hotel.
There are a number of things you should definitely do when traveling, just to be safe (check out the “Travel” page of this blog). But as an added measure, and for peace of mind, one handy product is a must-have for a traveler – JT Eaton Bed Bug Control for Luggage and Mattresses. This bed bug travel spray is cheap (only $12.99), safe, compact, and it is EPA-approved! Just spritz the stuff in and around your luggage before you pack, paying particular attention to the luggage zippers, folds, creases, and wheels. Allow the water-based spray to dry, then pack up your clothes. It’s a great way to deter and even kill bed bugs trying entering your bag when traveling (whether it’s in an airport or at the hotel). And make sure to bring it with you on your trip, since it doubles as a travel mattress spray. Spray it around your hotel mattress, box spring and headboard for extra peace of mind. As with all the bed bugs products out there, be sure to read the label carefully before using.
