You should, and need to take these insects seriously. If you go on holidays or go to a hotel room, inspect the room before you move your belongings into the room. If you see evidence of dark spots on the mattress, ask for another room, or find another place to stay. You do not want to take these pests home with you.
Unfortunately if you have a problem at home with bed bugs, they will not go away by ignoring the problem. Bed bugs can live up to eighteen months without eating, so leaving a room empty for a while is not a solution.If you have a problem, call me at 877-679-0303.
