NEXT time you travel, be careful to avoid a common habit that should leave your skin crawling.

According to experts, the first thing you do when you check in to your hotel might have long-lasting – and gross – consequences.

When you walk into a hotel room, there are things you do right away: kick off your shoes, hang up your jacket, and unpack your suitcase.

But pest control experts told the team at Cubby that if you put your suitcase on the bed to sort through it, you're putting yourself at risk.

Brittany Campbell, PhD, is the staff entomologist for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA).

"Bed bugs are typically found on mattresses, box springs, and in the crevices of furniture and inside upholstery," Campbell explained.

If you place your suitcase on the bed, insects could make a new home in your clothes, or embed themselves in the lining of the luggage.

But don't think that using the hotel-supplied luggage rack will keep your clothing safe from an infestation.

Depending on the style of rack the hotel provides, it could also be harboring bed bugs.

"Avoid using racks with hollow legs, since bed bugs can hide within the legs," Campbell warned.

If you aren't going to store your suitcase on the luggage rack, or place it on the bed, where should you keep it?

Campbell suggested moving the suitcase to a different part of the hotel room, one with little fabric or upholstered furniture to host the insects.

Store your suitcase in the bathtub, she said, and you'll avoid picking up any bugs that previous inhabitants of the room might have left behind.

“For added protection, you can place your suitcases in plastic trash bags during the duration of the trip," Campbell added.

You can seal the plastic bag during the night, then easily slip the cover back down when you need to access your bag.

According to the pest expert, bed bugs can be present in any lodging, from a roadside motel to a luxury resort.

"Bed bugs are extremely skilled hitchhikers," Campbell told the outlet.

You could bring bed bugs home with you, or you could spread them during travel.

Depending on your transportation method, a particularly bad infestation could also spread along an airplane, train, or bus.

For that reason, it's a wise idea to quarantine your suitcase in the bathroom when you return home.

If you wind up bringing home bed bugs, this will buy you time to contact a local pest control expert to help take care of the infestation.

I make amazing money and travel the world after quitting dead end jobs – people always use the same insult

A SCOTS model has told how she transformed her life by ditching her normal Monday to Friday work life.

Dee, 31, joined adult site OnlyFans before it had a reputation for raunchy material and now uses the platform AdmireMe which was set up by her pal Chelsea Ferguson.

3Dee's job allows her to go on amazing trips 3She's leading the life that she wants to 3The model is so glad she's not in a nine to five job anymore

The former stripper, from Glasgow, makes good money for her efforts and feels fortunate to have a career that funds such a fabulous lifestyle.

Dee claims that the income she now earns from flogging her content on the platforms has changed her life after she quit a series of "dead end jobs".

And she says she loves the freedom it allows her to travel as she earns the cash to fund the lavish life.

She says: "I used to be in dead end jobs and I hated it. 

“I never felt fulfilled. I would last about six months before I’d quit because I hated them that much. 

“The confidence you get from this job is worth it on its own. 

“I’ve referred over 60 creators to AdmireMe and I always hear how much it changes their lives. 

“One of them now lives in Thailand full time, travelling from one boujee apartment to the next.

“I love the freedom it gives me. I get to spend my time doing the things I love, travelling being one of them. 

“Before Covid I went on a trip every month. 

“AdmireMe changed my life. We’ve had the best time from day one, watching it grow into something incredible.”

Dee also says that anyone who thinks her job is easy doesn’t have a clue.

It’s an insult she’s faced often and she wishes people could see just how much goes into it.

She adds: “The money is incredible. 

“But what is never mentioned is it’s a lot of hard work. 

“You’re constantly trying to stay creative, not repeat old work, having to buy weekly outfits and spend hours mailing subscribers. 

“In a nine to five, you can wear just the same five outfits in your wardrobe but not on here.
