Do Bed Bug Travel With You

Have you ever wondered, “can bed bugs travel with you?” During the winter, bed bugs travel with people on vacation to warmer regions. As the weather warms up, more and more of these vermin invade our homes. What’s even worse than having to deal with an infestation of a few dozen or even a thousand? Roaming bed bugs that infest one part of your house only to have them spread throughout the entire residence. Bed bugs like to travel — they travel between infested places, they travel while you sleep, unfortunately they’ve started traveling by plane. This is because bed bugs are insects, and must have something to eat. Like most insects, bed bugs need an environment that is just right for them to survive. For example, if you live on the fifth floor in a big city, conditions may be too dry for some species of roaches; but if you live in a place where there is no plumbing, it might be too wet for some spiders. Bed bugs will only travel (hopefully not with you) when the transport conditions are just right — which means that they’ll only infest new places if they are going to get enough food and water themselves. In the last few months I’ve received more than 50 calls and emails from people who think they have bed bugs. More often than not, they report seeing tiny red dots, specks of blood, or dark spots on their sheets. Most of these people, after some questioning during our initial consultation, actually turn out to have ordinary carpet beetles in their home instead of bed bugs. This was an unintended consequence of my previously publishing a list of signs that you might have bed bugs.

Do Bed Bug Travel With You


Bed bugs are absolutely horrible. They do not care where they go as long as they can find a way to get blood so that they can survive and multiply. When you travel, you have to be very careful about bed bugs because if you pick them up from one place, then you will probably take them back home with you. Here are some ways that bed bugs travel when people travel:

They Travel With You

Yes, bed bugs can travel with you. This is because they are small and can hide in suitcases and other belongings that are taken around the world. They may also be picked up from hotels, other people’s homes, public places, or any other place that has been infested with them.

They Are Added To Your Luggage

>Bed bugs are small and can hide anywhere, so it is important to be aware of the places they might be found while traveling. Bed bugs like to hide in:

  • Luggage
  • Clothes
  • Shoes
  • Other items you’re carrying with you.

They may also get on other people’s belongings, so it is important to take precautions when handling luggage and other items that belong to your fellow travelers.

They Hitchhike With Other People

Bed bugs are hitchhikers. They travel with you, in your luggage and on other people who come into your home.

Bed bugs can also be carried in furniture, clothing and shoes.

They may also be transported in backpacks, purses, handbags or any other item that someone carrying bedbugs might use to transport them to another location.

Don’t Let Them Enter Your Home

Don’t let bed bugs travel with you.

  • Don’t bring them home.
  • Don’t take them to a hotel.
  • Don’t take them to a friend’s house or apartment, car or RV, and certainly not on the airplane!
  • Don’t take them to the beach, park or mall (or any place else).

Don’t carry bed bugs

If you have bed bugs, try to make sure that you don’t bring them with you when traveling. Bed bugs can travel on your clothes, luggage, car and even in the air! If you think that this may be a problem for your family or friends then it is best to speak with them about how they might deal with it.

There are many ways to prevent bed bugs from getting into your home; some of these include:

  • Cleaning frequently and thoroughly
  • Keeping beds away from walls and inside wooden frames or metal frame encasements (if possible)
  • Using insecticides on mattresses and upholstered furniture


The main takeaway from all this is that bed bugs do travel with you. They can be in your luggage, on clothes and other fabrics, or even hitchhike on the person next to you. Now that you know this, please be diligent about checking for them and preventing them from entering your home.
