Here Is How To Protect Yourself From Blood-Sucking Bedbugs On A Plane!

Last Updated on January 7, 2021

Guess what, bedbugs still exist and they’re out for your blood!

These little monsters made a strong comeback in the early 20th century and ever since then, they have been colonizing home furniture and hotel rooms, raiding movie theaters, settling under train and car seats, and flying economy, business, and first class!

Nobody is really safe from bed bugs, not even while flying, because these blood-sucking insects have recently been attacking passengers on planes and turning their vacations into nightmares.

Bed bugs thrive in places that aren’t frequently cleaned and often plane seats aren’t constantly cleaned. What if you meet this pest in one of your future flights? Are you going to just sit like a hostage and let them do their job?!

Nobody is doing any more of that, and that is why this list is here to show you how to protect yourself and belongings from bedbugs.


#1 – Know your bedbug!

First, you must know the enemy before you fight it.

Baby bed bugs are brownish and so tiny but, luckily, still visible. Whereas, adult bedbugs are reddish-brown pests that are oval-shaped and about the size of an apple seed. Bed bugs may appear flat or bloated, it all depends on whether they sucked your blood yet or not!

Like their partners in crime, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas, bed bugs survive on blood and like to live close to humans so they hide in places like box springs, small cracks, folded areas, and beds; hence their creative name.

Now that you know what bed bugs look like, what they want, and where they live, keep reading to find out how to protect yourself from them when they ambush you on a plane.

#2 – Cover your seat

You don’t want to emerge from your flight looking like a strawberry, so you’d better cover your seat with a bug-off seat cover to stop bedbugs that might be hiding in your seat from crawling up your body and covering your skin in bites.
