Preventative Measures

Summer is officially here which means it’s that time of year that people like to travel whether it’s to go down to the shore for the weekend or venturing on a week-long getaway with their families.

It’s also the perfect opportunity to make sure that your property is free from the #1 pest people hate to encounter on their vacation: bed bugs.

Bed Bug Problems

Bites
There are numerous reasons people don’t like bed bugs. The most important reason among poor customer reviews and a damaged reputation – they bite!

These pests thrive by feeding off the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts, and their bites can cause uncomfortable itching and welts.

However, not everyone has a reaction to their bites – meaning your guests might not know if they have them and will bring these pests home with them.

Bad Reputation
Once discovered, bed bugs are sure to keep customers (and all of their friends) far, far away from your business.

If you’re in the business of hospitality or property management, it is critical to ensure that you are properly protecting your entire establishment from these pests way before they get introduced to your facility.

Bed Bug Hiding Spots

Remember bed bugs can hide just about anywhere. Be sure to check all areas of each room in your hotel or apartment complex to make sure your customers have a comfortable, pest-free stay.

Train your staff to understand the signs of bed bugs and share with them this helpful Hotel Bed Bug Guide. Knowledge is power when it comes to these tiny critters.

Ensure your property is bed bug free so your guests keep coming back, not just this summer, but all year round.
