If there’s one thing that we can all agree on it’s that bugs make a majority of us extremely squeamish.
And I'm sad to report that THREE PENNSYLVANIA CITIES ARE ON THE LIST OF THE MOST BED BUG INFESTED IN THE NATION!
When going on vacation, I’m sure it’s a common practice for most families to take off the sheets on their hotel, motel, or Airbnb bed to check for these tiny, disgusting, bloodsucking insects.

How To Spot Bed Bugs When Traveling in Pennsylvania
Bed bugs are disgusting, tiny, brown insects that are just about 5 millimeters long on average according to EPA.gov. Since they’re so small, it’s easy to gaze over them, but we all need to be more conscious before crawling into bed with these critters!
They feed solely on the blood of people and animals while they sleep says CDC.gov. You’ll often be affected by them while traveling to different, hotels, resorts, motels, etc.
An easy way to identify a bed bug infestation is by looking for bite marks on your face, neck, arms, hands, or any other body parts.
The scary part about these disgusting little pests is that their bite marks may take as long as 14 days to develop in some humans, so you really need to check your mattresses, sheets, pillowcases, curtains, and other areas of hotel rooms when going away.
