We drag our suitcases, carry-on bags and backpacks all over the country (or world) when we travel, and when we get home, we wash all of our clothes but don't think twice about the actual bag. One of the easiest ways to give bed bugs a free ride into your home is through your luggage. Try this simple trick to see if your bags have bed bugs: Blow a hot hair dryer all over it. Use slow and steady motions to blow hot air along the edges and corners of the bag. Since bed bugs do not like heat, they will show themselves. If you see them, take steps to fully disinfect your bag outside of the home before bringing it back indoors.
