Bed bugs in Kuala Lumpur

Advertisement
Is it usual to find them in budget accomodation, or just unlucky?

I heard a few stories from people about bed bugs in Kuala Lumpur. Hopefully, it is not that bad? What has your experience been?

I got annihilated there and heard similar from other travellers, I guess there's not much you can do just use word of mouth to find a good and clean budget place to stay and also make sure your bags stay zipped up completely. Reply to this

Is the bed bug problem just widespread in Kuala Lumpur, or is it all over Malaysia? Reply to this

PULL OFF THE SHEETS AND LOOK FOR THE LITTLE BUGS BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK OF SLEEPING IN THE BED, THEY DO NOT LIKE LIGHT SO DO IT IN AS LOW LIGHT AS POSSIBLE. THERE NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE BUT YOU CAN WITH THE RIGHT APPROACH LIFT UP THE MATREESS AND LOOK HOPE THEY ARE NOT IN YOUR BED OR GEAR THEY ARE HARD TO GET RID OF MY FREIND HAD A RUN IN WITH THEM AT A LOCAL HOTEL THIS WAS HIS ADVICE TO ME? ALSO IF THERE IS A MAJOR INFESTATION LOOK BEHIND PICTURES HANGING ON THE WALL
