One generally hears about bed bugs in New York or more exotic destinations however, I recently read of an instance of bed bugs in London. There is no need for frenzied panic as this appears to have been a one off instance!It is interesting that the rise in instances of bed bugs may be a result of more travel in recent years. Experts also speculate as to whether bedbugs are resistant to certain treatments.

There are a few simple tips to follow when travelling such as storing your suitcase on a luggage rack rather than on the floor, checking the mattress before using the bed and doing your washing straight away when you get home. It is also worth checking your suitcase for any insects etc that may have hitched a lift home with you.  Whilst bed bugs have a rather nasty bite they can be treated.
