I got a new role in Ohio. My SO is freaking out about the bedbug crisis there. Any tips of how to protect against bedbugs?

The whole of Ohio is having a bed bug crisis? Really? I have been travelling there for the last few weeks and haven’t heard a thing about this.

Gen Z and half of millennials probably never heard of it.

Was on a four month project in Cleveland. Never once even heard of this let alone saw a single bug.

I have lived in Ohio for 15 years and never seen a bed bug in the state nor heard of this bed bug crisis that is happening in the state.

Typically NYC has been particularly bad for bedbugs. Surprised Ohio would be so bad as it gets a far less voluminous or diverse traveler population. But anyway, when checking in: - Pull back the sheets and look for brown stains where your feet go and around the edges of the mattress. If you see this, reject the room. - Use the luggage rack to store your bags, don’t throw them on the other bed or upholstered furniture. Hang your clothes, don’t leave them on the furniture. That’s pretty much it. A little effort up front can save an infestation later on.

We have a stinkbug problem in Southern Ohio, but the bedbugs are in houses, not hotels.

You can also get bedbug traps that you put between the mattress and box springs as soon as you get in the room and then check them before you get in the bed later that night. Between this, pulling back the sheets for a visual inspection, and never putting my luggage on the carpet or an upholstered surface, I feel pretty good.

I’ve lived in Ohio for 29 years and have never encountered a bedbug. I’ve also been staying in hotels in Columbus on projects for parts of the last 3 years with no issue there either. Honestly this is the first I’m hearing of it. I’d say as long as you’re clean and live in a decent neighborhood you’re fine

Luggage in the bathtub for the duration of your stay. If no tub, then at least in the bathroom.
