After a bed bug scare, hotel owners find themselves under tons of stress. Be proactive and get Panama City pest control on the scene immediately. Online reviews that mention bed bugs in a hotel can tank your reputation.
In some cases, hotel customers have successfully sued for damages related to stress and health problems. Even Disneyland has been sued for bed bugs!
Where to Look for Bed Bugs
You don’t have to wait until after dark to stake out bed bugs. They hide during the day in fabric or upholstered furniture. Grab a flashlight if the room is dim and inspect for bed bugs in places such as:
– Underneath the mattress and box spring
– Mattress covers and sheets
– On upholstered chairs and sofas, especially near the seams
– Inside of sleeper sofas
– In closets where luggage or laundry has been kept
Prevent Bed Bugs in Hotels
Hotels can largely prevent bed bugs from spreading by inspecting rooms between guests and thoroughly washing all linens on high heat.
If a guest suspects bed bugs, tell them to place all their dirty laundry in airtight plastic bags. When they get home, they should wash everything and vacuum out their luggage.
