The risk of bed bugs in hotels

Since the bed bug resurgence of the 1990s, bed bugs in hotel and motel rooms are unfortunately common. For one thing, bed bugs never miss meals in hotel rooms. Even if a room is vacant for a day or two, they can access different rooms through shared walls.

We recommend always reading reviews and searching for mentions of bed bugs before booking hotel accommodations. Also, once you get there, check the mattress and furniture in the room. Lastly, elevate your suitcase or put it in the bathtub out of the reach of bed bugs.

Bed bugs and college students

With so many people living in one building, bed bugs can quickly spread throughout student housing units. That’s why, if you have a college student returning home, make sure to thoroughly check and make sure they haven’t brought any bed bugs home. Check their luggage and wash any clothes they’ve brought with them. Yes, even the clean clothes.

Who's at risk for bed bugs?

We’re all at risk of bed bugs. Bed bugs are not picky. But the people who are most at risk are those that don’t know about bed bug behavior or the common scenarios that bring them into new environments.

Taking precautionary measures whenever possible can help, but if they do find their way in, a professional bed bug exterminator can help you solve the problem quickly and easily.
