How Big Are Bed Bugs

It is fairly likely that you are not going to be all that satisfied with life if you spend the majority of it in one place, which means that traveling to as many exotic locations as possible will be quite high up on your current list of things that you want to get squared away. The thing is, the more exotic your vacation destination is, the more likely it will be to contain pests that you might potentially bring back home with you once all has been said and is now out of the way.

Taking some common sense precautions and following tips to avoid bed bugs while traveling can help you enjoy your trip more than might have been the case otherwise. The reason behind this is that you would not have to concern yourself with the thought of bringing disease causing insects in your luggage or your clothing. One thing that you should be aware of is the size of bed bugs, since that can make you more cautious as you proceed. Most of the time, bed bugs are really tiny and they are often about the size of the seed of an apple.

That said, if you notice a bed bug that is twice this size, this means that it has fed on your blood recently so you might want to take some drastic action before heading out. Try to avoid placing your luggage on the bed so that you can keep it safe. Another thing to do is to always request fresh sheets. Backpacking throughout the world can be a lot of fun, but you should still make sure you do it with your head on straight.
