Bed bugs are infiltrating buildings around the city which, unfortunately, includes also hotels people’s homes. Both serve as places for people to lay their heads during the upcoming summer season.  Companies, such as Airbnb, have gone to great lengths in order to protect their app users from having bad bedbug experiences. They have gone as far as to grant full refunds to guests.

The president of Terminix told CBS News, “Bed bugs continue to pose concerns for public health, as their presence is felt across the country, in cities large and small,”. CBS advises that when traveling, try things such as vacuuming suitcases after use and washing clothes in hot water, to prevent the migration of bedbugs.
