How can I make sure that I don’t bring bed bugs home with me after traveling?

1. Using a disposable mattress cover when traveling will usually help to not bring bed bugs home with you after traveling. 2. When traveling, put your luggage in a large black garbage bag when not being used.

3. Once you get home, to lay down a white sheet on the ground and empty out all of your clothes and things in your luggage. If bed bugs are present you will be able to spot them or their residue on the white sheet. 4. Once home, throw all your clothes in the dryer for about 20 minutes. If there are bed bugs in the clothes, the heat will kill them.
