Bed bugs are common in hotels, motels and even airplanes these days. However, many people wouldn't expect to hear about them infesting buses. Yet this is the newest spot for bed bugs to invade. Bed bugs are now being found on buses used for public transportation. Like airplanes, buses carry hundreds of people back and forth within a day. These people can bring bacteria and pests onto the bus with them. Once bed bugs are on the bus, it doesn't take long for them to get comfortable and infest the place, Allergy Technologies noted. If the bus is traveling a long distance, they may also have time to get into people's belongings, such as handbags, meaning they could come home with you. Consider these tips to prevent bed bugs from following you home.

Pest management tips

Get to know the enemy: If you regularly take the bus, it's important you familiarize yourself with bed bugs. One thing that's important to know is that bed bugs like to hide, and mainly choose areas that are upholstered or have a fabric covering. So, if you're hopping on the bus, try to avoid these areas and instead stand, WFTX-TV suggested. You should also steer clear of placing belongings on these types of seats, as it makes bed bugs' jobs much easier.

Don't get separated from your stuff: If you can help it, don't place your items in a bus's undercarriage, as this is one of the easiest ways bed bugs can crawl from one bag to another. While these areas are usually not upholstered, people are often the reason behind the bed bug invasion, as they bring the bugs in the first place. Instead, try to keep your bag with you. If you cannot, place it inside a plastic bag, such as a shopping bag. This will prevent bed bugs from wiggling into your stuff.

Wash well: If you're on a longer bus ride and you suspect that bed bugs might have crawled into your things or onto your clothing, it's important to wash everything. Place all your belongings in hot water and in the dryer for at least 20 minutes to ensure that you kill off all bugs. Make sure that you wash belongings as soon as you get home, and don't let them sit on the floor or in a hamper, as the bed bugs could infest your home. If you have items that can't be washed, such as a bag, place it in an airtight container and keep it there, which will help suffocate the bugs.
