For residents interested in learning how to check a mattress for bedbugs when travelling, the Santa Clarita pest control company Unipest is offering advice.
Inspecting a mattress for bedbugs prior to sleeping there is easy and fast, according to Cardon Ellis of Unipest.
“All you really have to do is inspect the seams within six to eight feet of the head of where a bed is, because that’s always where they gravitate first,” he said, adding that bedbugs are able to pick up on the carbon dioxide in the breath around a person’s head.

A good place to start the inspection is at the mattress’ material tag, a location where bedbugs seem to congregate, according to Ellis.
Ellis advises not only looking for the bedbugs themselves, but for the fecal material left behind by bedbugs.
“Look for little spotting that looks kind of like pepper,” Ellis said. “That’s actually their fecal material.”
If bedbugs, or evidence of them, are discovered on a mattress while travelling, Ellis advises informing hotel management so the problem can be addressed.
