1. Before leaving

Do your homework

Before you leave for Paris or another destination, find out about the signs of bedbug infestation. Understand what they look like, how they feed and where they hide. The more you know, the better equipped you will be to avoid them.

Carry prevention products

In your travel kit, include prevention products, such as bed bug-resistant mattress covers. These covers will help protect your mattress from possible bedbugs.

2. Upon arrival at your hotel or accommodation

Inspect your accommodation

Upon arrival, before dropping off your luggage, carefully inspect the hotel room. Look under mattresses, behind the headboard, in cracks and crevices in furniture. These pests leave dark stains on sheets and mattresses, so keep an eye out for these signs.

Inspect your accommodation

Avoid placing your luggage directly on the bed or floor. Use a luggage rack to keep your belongings off the floor, where bedbugs might hide.

3. During your stay

Keep your stuff organized

Keep your clothes and luggage organized during your stay. Avoid leaving clothes scattered around the hotel room, as pests can hide in the folds of your clothing. Ideally, even leave your suitcases closed at all times.

Wash in hot water

If you have worn clothes that you suspect may have come into contact with bed bugs, wash them in hot water and dry them on high heat to remove any potential intruders.

4. After your return to Montreal

Wash your clothes

When you return to Montreal, wash all the clothes you wore while traveling, including those you did not wear. This will help eliminate any risk of bringing bed bugs home.

Inspect your home

Do a thorough inspection of your home upon your return. Make sure you haven’t unknowingly brought in any pests or unwanted items. If you have the slightest doubt, call pest management professionals in Montreal for a complete inspection.
