Toronto residents love to travel. With Pearson airport close to both the cities of Toronto and Mississauga it provides convenient travel options for Toronto homeowners. However travel is one the major factors in bed bug infestations. Bed bugs can be brought back to your Toronto home by invested clothing, suitcases or souvenirs.
Always perform a bed bug inspection of hotel rooms and sleeping areas prior to turning in for the night. Bed bugs like to hide in dark areas so behind headboards and in-between the mattress and box spring are often hot spots for bed bug activity. There are other signs of infestation to watch out for. Notify hotel management right away if you find any evidence of bed bugs. We also suggest not unpacking your clothes into dressers in case of bed bug infestation.
