Hotel bed bugs – a real reputation killer

Just mention bed bugs and it’s enough to make the skin crawl. No one likes the thought of sleeping in a bed full of these little parasites that like to feast on human blood – and yet, some hotels and guest houses in Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire are rife with them. All it takes is one complaint, a bad review on TripAdvisor or other social media such as Facebook and Twitter, and the damage to business could be beyond repair. So what can be done to detect and eliminate bed bugs before they become a serious problem? At Protec Pest Control, Manchester, we believe it’s important to understand the cause of bed bug infestations, so you’ll appreciate the benefits of the solutions that we can offer.

What causes bed bug infestations?

Believe it or not, but in the early 1940s, bed bugs had been almost entirely wiped out in the developed countries of the world. However, an increase in global travel saw bed bug infestations once again on the rise. This is because, despite their name, they are just as likely to latch on to clothing or luggage and hitch a ride from one location to another. Having bed bugs in your hotel is therefore not a sign of uncleanliness – it is more a result of many people coming and going, some of whom are unknowingly bringing bed bugs in with them. Despite this, customers will inevitably feel that the hotel is at fault and will assume that poor hygiene standards are to blame.

Another problem facing local hotel owners in Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire-wide, is that it is rarely easy (without the help of a professional pest control firm such as Protec) to diagnose when you are at the early stages of a bed bug infestation. They are not easy to spot, as they can squeeze their small, flat carapaces into tiny cracks or mattress seams, and will hide away until it is dark. Spots of blood on bed sheets may indicate their presence as their faeces contains traces of the blood that they consume, although it is equally possible that the blood could come from a bed bug that has been squashed when the person it was feeding on rolled over in their sleep.

Newly arrived bed bugs can reproduce quickly if their presence goes unnoticed, and this can lead to their numbers spreading fast from one room to another. The longer an infestation goes unaddressed, the further it will spread. A whole floor may become infested, and before long the infestation will spread to other floors as well. The more customers who are exposed to these conditions, the greater the risk of complaints arising, and the more difficulty and the higher the cost in getting it put right. Bed bug bites are usually found in a straight line on the body (as opposed to the more random bites of fleas or mosquitos) and can be very itchy and distressing for the person who has been bitten.

You may be wondering about DIY bed bug solutions. Washing bed sheets frequently and on a high heat isn’t enough to deter bed bugs, as they can infest carpets, skirting boards and items of furniture. Shop-bought bug sprays are rarely enough to stop them without knowing exactly where they are located, and bed bugs have also developed a high immunity to many chemical solutions that may pose more of a threat to the people using them (e.g., accidental inhalation) than the bed bugs themselves. Also, by the time you realise that you have a problem, it will often be on a greater scale than you are likely to be able to deal with on your own – this is where Protec Pest Control comes in.
