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.

    The pair also shared pics of themselves before their relationship became public, including shots of them in a photo booth and on their now-famous third date to Botswana in 2016.

    They also included shots of the couple FaceTiming in the early days of their relationship.

    Harry, 38, and Markle, 41 — who left the UK in March 2020 and moved to Montecito, Calif. — were “having second thoughts” about the series following Queen Elizabeth II’s death in September, Page Six previously reported.

    “Harry and Meghan are panicked about trying to tone down even the most basic language,” an insider told us at the time.

    Since stepping down from their royal duties, the couple — who tied the knot in 2018 — has been the target of international media, TV personalities and social media commentators alike.

    They also shared photos from early on in their relationship.Netflix

    They eventually sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all interview in March 2021, where Markle revealed the scrutiny she was put under by the British press drove her to contemplate suicide while pregnant with her son, Archie.

    “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore,” she told Winfrey, explaining that she “just didn’t see a solution” to the tidal wave of negative reports about her.

      “I would sit up at night, and I was just like, ‘I don’t understand how all of this is being churned out.'”

      The “Deal or No Deal” alum and the grandson of the late Queen Elizabeth ll later revealed they had signed on to film a series with the streaming giant, and chose Liz Garbus to direct.

      The first three episodes of their docuseries dropped Thursday.Netflix

      “It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I’ve long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it,” the former “Suits” star told Variety in October about working with the Oscar-nominated director.

      Markle also told The Cut that the series would focus on the couple’s “love story.”

      “[It’s] the piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see … our love story,” she said.

      The last three episodes of the Netflix series comes out Dec. 15.
