This is because bed bugs can be brought home through your luggage, clothes, bags etc. and by carrying just 1 single surviving female bed bug home, it can spell disaster.

It is a traveller’s biggest fear: waking up in a hotel bed (or even your own bed!) with the telltale bites and droplets of blood on the sheets.

Bed Bug Management programme is derived from Rentokil's holistic defence against bed bugs, encompassing a 4-step approach inclusive of Exclusion, Restriction, Destruction and Monitoring.

Hence, reducing the risk of re-infestation.
