Sure you've heard about the invasion of bedbugs in PARIS, LONDON AND NOW TRAVELING INTERNATIONALLY?
So many spots have seen sightings: homes, theaters cinemas, hotels, and now the biggest concern is really about the travel industry and all flights to and from Paris.
In fact, as ANSES ( the French health and safety agency) states, the increase in bedbug infestations in recent years is mainly due to increased travel and the growing resistance of bedbugs to insecticides.
Bed bugs reside mainly in human beds but can "travel" by being carried on clothes, suitcases, and carry-on luggage and airplane seats.
How can I avoid getting bedbugs when traveling by plane or train- or even ride share cars?
Nobody really wants to stop traveling!
There are some small but important "precautions" you can take to guard against bed bugs both during a trip and when you arrive at your destination or return home

In fact, on a plane, seat cleaning may not have been thorough enough.

- Bring wipes to disinfect all hard, nonporous surfaces like the TV screen and remote, tray table, and seat belt buckle.
