    A former Orkin guy told me what to do when checking for bedbugs.

    Put the luggage in the bathtub not on the tile floor.
    Run your hand along the headboard and see if you see something that resembles pepper.
    Pull back the sheets and mattress cover and look for black or blue ink stains.
    Last but not least check the stitching for them they're small and black.

    If there are any of the above indicators time to leave.
    May you never have this problem !!

    Luckily, these critters seem to be less of a problem than a couple years ago when they reemerged on the scene.

    I do bring a flashlight and check, but we usually toss our dirty clothes in the corner.
    After reading the articles we will now bring trash bags and keep them in there instead.
    Go info.

    I found bed bugs last trip, didn't need a flashlight. They tried giving us a suite. But between the bugs, stains on mattress and sheets we were out of there. But they said it would have been fine.....they were all dead. This was at Boulder Inn, bumped off a flight and needed a room on a Saturday night.

    We always use the plastic bags handing in the closet to send out laundry for our dirty laundry. Usually tucked in one of the suitcases.

    OK, just a contrary opinion. I have never given it thought and won't until I get bit the first time.

    I'm sure it's a real pain in the ass if you end up getting an infestation in your home. But this falls into the "you can't worry about every little thing" category for me.

    If you don't want to go to the trouble of checking, just bring your own.
