It’s summer, 2022 and travel is back! Don’t find your hotel or motel unready for bed bugs.
It’s been quite a while since people traveled like they are now. The statistics tell us the number of travelers might still be lower than pre-covid, but the lines at the airports and occupancy at many hotels tell us another story.
Regardless of the numbers, people want to get out and about again!
For many people, the last two years have been isolating from friends, family, and exotic vacations. Many folks lived with bed bugs during the pandemic closures. Any surviving bed bugs in hotels or motels have lived without a good meal for a year or more. Travelers who still have bed bugs at home will probably take them with them. Hungry bed bugs will search you out where you’re staying, and could very well hitchhike home with you.
Either way, it’s a situation we will find ourselves in for a while to come.
Today’s message is directed to the hospitality industry: When one side of the hospitality industry gets bed bugs, everyone has the potential of getting bed bugs. Being prepared and knowing who to call at the first sign of an infestation can make all the difference between a quick solution and a long, drawn-out problem and Google review nightmare.
Strike One: In most cases, a hotel and motel pest control contract does not cover bed bug infestations and you’ll be out of pocket for the treatment. Strike Two: A traditional chemical treatment can take several weeks to fully eliminate the infestation. Strike Three: Your room will be out of commission for the duration of the treatment.
Don’t strike out at the very time people want to occupy your hotel. Don’t lose much-needed revenues at a time of peak opportunity.
Doing a bed bug heat treatment with GreenTech Heat equipment can quickly reduce the financial burden of a bed bug infestation. Don't pay out of pocket for the treatment.
