Family Pest Control’s Hotel Bed Bug Checklist - San Antonio

Aug 20, 2017

We all know the rhyme:

“Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.”

Unfortunately, bed bugs aren’t fictional, and you may be their next victim if you’re not careful. Although you can get bed bugs from spending time with lots of people in crowded places, it is more likely that you will pick them up from a hotel.

Your Hotel Checklist

Before visiting a hotel, make sure to check your local, online hotel bed bug registry to make sure the place you are staying at is free from pests. Once you get to your hotel, follow this checklist to ensure you don’t bring home any unexpected friends.

1. First Thing’s First - Put Your Luggage In The Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the few places that bed bugs hate to go because of the tile floors and lack of hiding spaces, so store your personal belongings here before proceeding to check for signs of bed bugs.

2. Check For Evidence Of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are notoriously good hiders so even if you don’t notice any there may still be hundreds, if not thousands, of them hiding in the lining of your mattress and your bed frame.

3. Broaden Your Search To The Rest Of The Room

If you can’t find any bed bugs in your linens, do a quick scan and search the rest of the room just to make sure.

4. Continue To Be Careful

It’s better to be safe than sorry and even though there may be no signs of infestation, always keep your luggage off the floor and in a plastic casing.
