Video: How to detect and kill bedbugs in your hotel room

Now bed bugs have gone from occasional nuisance to major problem in some cities, it makes sense to educate yourself on how to detect and kill these pests.

In this video, you’ll see Michael Colongione, president of GotchA! Bedbug Inspectors explain how you can prevent taking bedbugs with you, and how to spot them in your (hotel) room.

With some simple tips, like carrying a flashlight and checking books in the nightstand, you’ll know exactly where to look.

If you do come across bedbugs, you can of course pack up your things and get another room. Alternatively, if your belongings are already infected, you can now kill the bugs with Pronto Plus, an EPA approved bedbug spray. Pronto Plus is available in a 3 oz. travel size canister, making it approved for transporting through security in your carry-on bag.

The travel size spray is available at Walmart, and you’ll find it in the first aid aisle.
