Bed Bugs InfestingVacation rentals & alternative travel lodging

Vacation rentals and alternative travel lodging can serve as a source of steady flow of income for owners. Lots of people are looking out for places to rest their backs on their vacation trips and vacation rentals are affordable reliable options to employ. Reviews are part of what makes the business thrive and sometimes a negative review like say a mention of bed bugs can leave business tumbling down.

Bed bugs are not the friendly next-door neighbors you hope to get. They are agents of havoc that can make vacation time for your guests miserable. They can latch on to clothing, bags and personal properties of unsuspecting people and use that as a transportation means to get into your vacation properties. Known as hitchhikers, these little suckers on entrance to your property, look for cool and habitable spots where they can hide, breed and easily have access to humans for their meals.

They like their prey stationary hence why they usually attack stealthily when humans are asleep or sitting in one position. Bed bugs are usually termed nocturnal insects but that doesn’t mean they don’t attack when during the day.

You may assume your vacation lodge or travel lodge is clean, therefore, you have no bed bugs worries. Don’t let that flatter you in any way, bed bugs aren’t attracted by dirt, although dirt can assist in their coverage, they are attracted by humans and furry pets. Anywhere that has a steady flow of humans like a vacation lodge, may have a bed bug lurking in the shadows.

Bed bugs are movers and are always on the move. They often latch on to people without their consent from public transports, hotels, office buildings and other places. Unsuspecting guests carry bed bugs on them via their clothing, bags and other items without their knowledge.
