Charleston, SC has once again been voted the #1 city in America to live and #2 in the world. With accolades like this, comes increase travel. With increase travel comes unwanted visitors in the luggage of new visitors to Charleston. It's important to stay mindful and check your luggage and your room when traveling. Bed bugs are not fun to be around. While this report in the link attached is about Phoenix, it could very easily be Charleston or any city for that matter.
One common mistake if the idea that bed bugs are only associated with filth, and as long as you stay clean, you're safe. This is not the case at all. In fact, bed bugs themselves are fairly clean creatures As long as you're breathing out Carbon Dioxide, you're a target for bed bugs no matter how clean you keep it. Surprisingly, bed bugs do not carry any known diseases. However, what they do is tear down quality of life while infesting your home and feasting on your person. If you suspect your home might be infested, please give Champion a call for an inspection.
I highly recommend reading the article written by PCT on the recent bed bug reports in Phoenix.
