When your real nightmare comes alive - Mr & Mrs Bed Bug come knocking 

 

Mr and Mrs Bed Bug Welcome New Babies 

With hundreds and thousands of rooms to shelter and feed in, Mr and Mrs Bed Bug arrive happily together crashing the hotel guests’ rooms. Within a week, Mr and Mrs Bed Bug welcome the arrival of their new baby eggs! 

Did you know? An adult female bed bug lays an average of 5 eggs per day which is about 200 to 500 eggs in her lifetime. A blood meal is required before eggs can be laid. 

 

The Party Starts and… the After-Party Woes 

You can be sure a big bug party is so right going to happen room to room; streamers and party decorations up, food and drinks ready.

Hosting buggy parties in hotel rooms could be one of the worst nightmares for any hotel owners. The ‘guests’ of these parties do not pay and create havoc for your paying guests. Many owners later face immense hassles and stresses dealing with the after-party woes.

 

Experts in Pest Control to the Rescue 

With tiny bed bugs sheltering in the narrowest of gaps such as seams of mattresses, bed frames or behind furniture, bed bugs are flat and able to hide in various narrow spaces. It can be challenging to spot and control bed bugs with DIY methods. 

To clear out these unwanted hotel guests, party poopers are required- a professional pest control company. 

 

Know Thy Enemy 

Bed bugs live by feeding on blood and bite people when they are sleeping typically an hour before dawn. It can suck up to 8mg of blood (2.5 to 6 times of its own weight). Attracted by warmth and production of carbon dioxide by hosts, it is easy for bed bug to find its prey. 

An infestation can happen and get out of control really fast with room-to-room cross infestations in your hotel.

 

Why You Need to Get Rid of Bed Bugs: Your Hotel Reputation Can Be At Risk 

The Internet holds aplenty hotel review sites, with many experiences reviewed by your guests that are easily found online. This is all the easier for the bad ones to be up on the Internet. 

With Internet news going viral possibly only within hours, a review on having a bed bug bites experience in your hotel is the last thing you would want to happen. Good and bad reviews are now the deciding factor to having a guest clicking the ‘book now’ button on your site. 

In some real case examples, a lawyer bitten by bed bugs sues a leading London hotel. And in another a couple wants $20 Million after a bed bug attack in a New York Hotel. 

Don’t be a guest’s worst nightmare, be their sweetest dreams instead. Sleep tight; don’t let the bed bugs bite!
