Bugged by Bed Bugs: Avoid Bringing Home the House Guests from Hell

Bed bugs are the souvenirs that no one wants to bring back home from a vacation. But, unfortunately, these nasty bugs continue to be a huge problem in the United States. According to the 2013 Bugs Without Borders Survey, which was conducted by the National Pest Management Association and the University of Kentucky, nearly 100 percent of all pest professionals who responded to their study said they had treated a bed bug infestation in the past year.

Although most bed bug infestations were reportedly in residential properties, hotels were the second most common site that pest professionals were asked to treat for these blood-sucking insects. And it's not just seedy motels that can be infested with bed bugs. According to the Seattle Times, even luxury hotels can fall prey to these nasty little buggers.
