The publicity may have subsided but fears still exist about bed bugs when traveling. With the news reports from the problem in New York City, there is a rise of products to fight these nasty pests. Here are some I found online for traveling. I'll likely pick up one for my next visit to NYC to test it out. But strange thing about such products: You don't know if it works by what doesn't happen. If you see bed bugs and then none, it works. But if there were no bed bugs to begin with, does it still work?
