In the past few decades, bed bugs have been on the rise, a bane for travelers everywhere. Luckily, ThermalStrike now offers a line of heated luggage, killing bed bugs in your clothes before they can infest your home.
Bed bugs are not a problem exclusive to the third world or low-cost motels. They are capable of reproducing in any type of accommodation that has places to hide, like carpets, cushions, bedding and, yes, suitcases. Your luggage, especially a cloth suitcase, has plenty of nooks and crannies for pests to hide. Fortunately ThermalStrike designed a suitcase which heats its contents to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which is lethal for bed bugs and their eggs.
The hard-side suitcase is made of a lightweight polycarbonate shell, which completely seals off the contents from the outside, preventing bugs from entering or escaping. Once plugged into a wall socket, a blue light indicates an electrical current. A timer lets the user choose a two-, six- or eight-hour heating cycle, though a full eight hours is recommended for a full suitcase. A green light indicates the heating panels are on, and users are advised to remove food, medications, cosmetics, electronics and any other objects that might get damaged by the heat.
The Bungalows at Kenzo Hall officially opened to guests last month. The bungalows feature 10 luxury accommodations in Kenzo Hall, a 22-room lakefront hotel operated by Western Catskills hotel and restaurant group Foster Supply Hospitality. The name pays tribute to the bungalow colonies in the Catskills from the turn of the 19th century, when Jewish farmers around the region began renting cottages to seasonal travelers escaping the cities. In the 1950s, many of the Bungalows offered full-service amenities like meals and entertainment.
