CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regardless of whether the trip is for business or pleasure, one of the most important elements of successful travel is using high-quality, reliable luggage. Now travelers have a new option called ThermalStrike, a brand of luggage which offers a sleek, luxury look and feel, combined with relief that they won’t be traveling home with bed bugs.
“We haven’t heard about bed bugs much in the media recently, even though infestations continue to spread throughout the United States and abroad, especially as a result of increased travel,” said Jeffrey White, entomologist at BedBug Central, an information resource and website with information about bed bugs and bed bug related issues. “Travelers are better educated about bed bugs and have become more aggressive about checking their hotel rooms for the pests, but this product can ease all the fears of bringing undetected bugs home.”
ThermalStrike uses state-of-the-art infrared heat technology that slowly raises the temperature of the hard-sided luggage to 140 degrees. At that temperature, all stages of bed bugs and eggs are killed in approximately 2.5 hours, without the use of chemicals.
According to White, luggage like this can offer peace of mind for travelers, but also for family members who didn’t take the trip. “Bed bugs are great hitch-hikers, which causes a lot of concern for families of frequent travelers. With ThermalStrike, both travelers and their family members can rest easy knowing that the unwanted pests will not be transported into their homes.”
Currently, ThermalStrike luggage is available online as a 20-inch carry-on or a 24-inch upright. Both sizes are TSA and FAA compliant.
