NEW YORK, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bedbug prevalence is on the rise in hotels and motels just as Americans start to embark on the summer travel season.  Savvy travelers know that a portable bed bug detector such as UGHBUG™ and careful monitoring, can provide peace of mind and minimize any encounters with bedbugs.

UGHBUG™, created by a pediatrician, allows people to easily detect evidence of bedbugs using a special UV light.  The team at UGHBUG suggests checking every hotel room for evidence of bedbugs.  First, place all bags in the lavatory while you use the hand-held UGHBUG™ to check out the mattress, furniture, curtains and other areas of the room.   

UGHBUG™ will fluoresce evidence of bedbugs including droppings and eggs.  A magnifying window will show patches and spots that glow purple with the special UV light.  It will also show evidence of lice.  Upon seeing the spots, a person should take action – if in a hotel, move rooms or change hotels; if the spots are seen at home, call a licensed pest control service; and if in a public space, move locations.  

According to the EPA, the best tip for preventing bed bugs is vigilant monitoring.  UGHBUG™  helps make monitoring easy and can be used anywhere bedbugs might be found including:  

  • Hotels
  • living areas
  • movie theaters
  • airplanes
  • schools
  • public spaces
  • bedding
  • plush toys
  • cars

UGHBUG™ is an essential travel protection item for savvy travelers that can provide peace of mind before turning out the lights!
