Ah the joys of bed bugs. We went on a trip this summer and the first thing we did was check the hotel review to see if there were bed bugs. America’s hotels in all its major cities have been affect by bed bugs. There really is no way of knowing that you are in a room with bed bugs unless you do a check of the room. One room we stayed in actually sliced the mattress and was spraying chemicals in the mattress to kill the bugs. Well, thanks for getting rid of the bugs but no way am I sleeping in a room that smells like strong chemicals. So, what do you do if you want to protect your family. Hmmmmm not to many choices for you except do you research and buy something natural to spray on the mattress before you sleep. Look online, you will see a variety of products. Good luck!
