Getting ready to travel for the holiday season?  If you are, you might be wondering if you'll be bringing some extra 'souvenirs' home in the form of bed bugs?  Check your hotel before you go with the Bed Bug Alert app.

Bed Bug Alert from Apps Genius is a crowd-sourced application that allows users to enter locations where they observed bed bugs.  The results are displayed on a map.

We made our annual holiday trip to New York City recently, but luckily we didn't didn't have any bugs to report on in our Westchester area hotel.

Bed Bug Alert is $1.99 from the App Store.
