There’s nothing more exciting than a vacation away from your stale, monotonous daily life. Traveling, for some, is a passion and if you’re planning to go on a holiday yourself then that’s great!
But what’s this? The moment you check into your hotel room and lay down on your bed, you start to feel your skin itch uncontrollably. That can’t be good. And that could actually ruin your holiday away from home. Although most of the times these bites are harmless they can be fatal to your health sometimes.
The only way to fight these pests is to take precautionary measure before you even check into the hotel.
Start with Some Research
Before booking your tickets to your holiday destination, it’s a good idea to do some online research on what kind of pests or insects are most common in that area. If you’re heading abroad to a tropical, humid area, you could be in danger of mosquito bites. Some of these mosquitos especially in the South Asian countries are carriers of deadly diseases like malaria and dengue fever. Educate yourself of the possible pest dangers before heading off to your vacation.
Insect repellant sprays and creams are easily available from any store. They’re useful to keep insects away and should be applied regularly especially before sleeping at night or before going out.
Watch out for the Sunset and Sunrise
Pests, especially the flying type, are most active when the sun is rising early in the morning or when it is setting in the late afternoon. You should avoid going out into the open during these two times and if you’re in your hotel room, you should keep the windows and doors locked to block their entry into your room.
Check for Bed bugs
The most common pest that most traveling tourists bring back with them (especially in their luggage) is the bed bug. Before lying down in your hotel bed, check for obvious signs of a bed bug infestation: blood spots and brown colored excretions. If you want to be extra cautious, you could have housekeeping clean the room or change the sheets before you use the bed.
