Bed Bugs InfestingLodging & Accommodations

The last thing every lodge owner wants is to get a negative review of his place. If it is not justifiable, such reviews can travel fast and would just be bad for business. Lodges, hotels, and motels are meant to be places of relaxation, comfort, and peace. It becomes a problem when that peace is disturbed by bed bugs. Imagine guests waking up after spending the night at a lodge and they see several marks of bed bug bite on their skin. If that happens in your lodge, no matter how you try to put a positive spin on it, there is no denying the fact that it doesn’t look good for you. In the case of bed bugs, bad publicity is actually bad for you and your lodge.

Bed bugs don’t just originate like magic on your property, they are often brought in by people and their personal belongings. Bed bugs are notorious hitchhikers that move from place to place using humans as their mode of transportation. They can easily latch on to clothing and personal items without giving up their presence. Known for their silent demeanor, these bad boys know how to cause havoc.

It is not surprising to find a room free of bed bug one night before, and the next day the guest leaves they are there. They know how to hide and attack in silence. Part of their attributes is the ability to reproduce in huge numbers. Females are known to reproduce close to 500 eggs in 12 months. Born without wings, these little insects know how to spread quickly at an alarming rate. They can easily move through vents, conduit pipes and ducts undetected.

Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans and furry animals. That is why one of the places to find them are places were humans spend a long time in one position such as beds and chairs. Irrespective of whether they are eggs, nymphs and Adult, bed bugs are dangerous.

As a lodge owner, constant inspections on your property would go to a long way in preventing an infestation on your property. You don’t know which guests might bring them in so you need to be on high alert.

It should also be put into consideration that a bed bug can be found on your property when you least expect. It is very important to have an immediate solution that is effective and potent.
