I am a frequent traveler to New York. Iâve heard on the news that they have bed bugs in most of the hotels. I took my 12 pk with me. I put the traps all around my room, i.e. under the mattresses, under the chair cushions, in my suitcases, in the drawers and in the corners of the room. Before I unpacked, I went site seeing. When I returned a few hours later, I found a bed bug in the trap I had placed in the corner of the room. I called the front desk, they said they would move me to another room immediately (and gave me my first night free!). When I moved to my new room, I repeated the process of placing the traps around the room. This time, no bed bugs were found in my room. I had peace of mind!
