The name suggests that bed bugs are found in beds. But an expert is now warning on TikTok about another dangerous place in hotel rooms.

Dr. Jason Singh, a physician who became known through TikTok, warns travelers about one place in the hotel room that, in addition to the mattress, may have a high probability of having bed bugs, the New York Post reports.

“Who of you packs all your clothes from your suitcase into the hotel dresser?” he asked on TikTok, pointing out that this type of furniture, especially those made of wood or with joints and cracks, could pose a risk for bed bug infestation. In addition, they are rarely cleaned.

Instead of using drawers, Singh suggests hanging clothes in closets or simply leaving them in suitcases. In discussions with colleagues in public health and pest control, he has found that “there has been increasing awareness that bed bugs can also thrive in unusual places such as dressers, headboards and even electrical outlets or picture frames in hotel rooms.”

Bed bugs are becoming increasingly prevalent in Germany and can prove to be a persistent nuisance once they have settled into your home. An expert explains here what measures you can take to combat them and, above all, how you can protect yourself.

A whimpering, seriously injured little girl was found in a cat box in front of an apartment building in the Altglienicke district of Berlin.

Because her luggage didn’t arrive, a woman took the initiative herself. She tracked her apparently stolen suitcase and drove to the house of an airport employee, where she actually found it.
