Just for me, I think going to the extreme of stripping the bed completely upon arrival is unnecessary.

From what I've read, a conspicuous place to check on ANY bed furniture is at the corners of the mattress and box springs. I will undertake to pull up the duvet/bedspread, top sheet, fitted sheet, and pad at each corner and inspect the corner seams top and bottom.

For me, I've never been a big fan of hotel dressers. I put my suitcase on a (preferably wooden) chair, and put dirties directly into a separate laundry bag.

I think these days most chains - particularly the larger ones where reputations can take a hammering over stuff like this really fast - have stepped up their examination of rooms in this regard. When I visited a particular hotel for a weekend trip this last fall, the bedcorners were immaculate and the date the mattress was flipped was noted on an affixed tag.

I don't think anyone can 100% inspect a room to be guaranteed free of those evil things, but I think you can mitigate the risk quite a bit without entirely stripping the bed.

It absolutely is not necessariy to completely strip the bed.
When I say strip the sheets and mattress pad, I mean lift it back around the corners so you can check the actual matress/box spring directly and not just what is on top of it.

Be careful of that wooden chair....they like that too. The absolutely best place to keep your luggage, although it is very inconvenient, is in the bath room. Specifically, the bath tub. I know, it's a pain, but those bugs like anything that isn't tile or metal.

Thank you to the original poster for posting this. It is a good reminder to fully check the beds and examine the room before entering. This is really scary!
