Pronto Plus® and Michael Colongione release 5 tips for staying bedbug-free while traveling this

LANGHORNE, Pa.May 24, 2012—Whether vacationing at the beach, in an exotic country, or at a local theme park, gas prices and airline baggage fees are just the beginning of summer travel woes. For anyone planning travel involving hotels, vacation rentals, airplanes, trains, or rental cars, the chance of encountering bedbugs at one time or another this summer is high.
There are steps, however, to minimize the risk.

Michael Colongione, President of GotchA! Bedbug Inspectors and spokesman for ProntoPlus®, a bedbug spray that effectively kills bedbugs and their eggs on contact, has compiled his list of the top-three tips to enjoy vacation and stay bedbug free:

1) Prior to departure, check any bedbug hotel registries to see if your hotel has been infested. Websites such as and have free, user submitted reports regarding bedbug outbreak and infestations at hotels.

2) Keep all luggage and carry-on bags off the floors and beds and out of the closets. Take advantage of the metal luggage racks in your room, and be sure to place any hanging garments over the bathroom door, rather than hanging in the closet.

3) Once you arrive, conduct a thorough inspection of your rental car and hotel room. Consider using a protective spray, such as Pronto Plus®, a bedbug spray that effectively kills bedbugs and their eggs on contact. Pronto Plus® protects your luggage, in the rental car, and in the hotel room to keep you safe and bedbug-free.
