Hotels With Bed Bugs

Hotels with Bed Bugs

Hotels with bed bugs are not uncommon. In fact, hotel and motels are the perfect place for hotel bed bugs transmission. Immigrants that had lived in a country and place with bed bugs infestation are suspected who brings back bed bugs in the US through their luggage.

Once hotel bed bugs infested a single room, these hotel bed bugs crawl on to the next room, create a new colony, and then crawl to another room, and then create another colony.

People have their wrong notion about hotel bed bugs; they thought that hotel bed bugs infest only those hotels and motels that are filthy. This is totally untrue. Hotel bed bugs do not dwell on a place because they are filthy (like cockroaches or rats) but because they are attracted to carbon monoxide (which humans exhale) and their human hosts from where hotel bed bugs withdraw blood from.

So, this means that even ritzy and posh hotels may have hotel bed bugs.

Hotel bed bugs are reddish brown, oval shaped, and are very flat which allow them to hide and lay eggs in tiny crevices. A small crack or hole can harbor hotel bed bugs.

Hotel bedbugs are nocturnal insects. They feed during the night and are generally more active an hour before dawn. Some hotel bed bugs feed during daytime, especially those who haven’t fed for a few months. An adult hotel bed bug may last eighteen (18) months without feeding. Their regular feeding cycle (when a host is present) is five to ten days.

If you want to check out the hotel for hotel bed bugs, go to places where a human being might stay, such as in bed, sofa, chairs, carpets, and furniture nearest to the bed. Check the crevices of these furniture including the mattress interiors and seams and bed frames.

The edge of a bed mattress and under it, are often the breeding ground of hotel bed bugs.

If you have seen one or two crawling hotel bed bugs, this is an indication that the infestation might be heavy. Hotel bed bugs are rarely seen. But the moment you see hotel bed bugs crawling near you, it means that there are many adult hotel bed bugs and they are fighting over a single host.

If you are planning a trip, prepare yourself to watch out for bed bugs infestation widely spread in various U.S. regions. There’s a good idea to note the bed bug infestation map in U.S., which will help you find the cities most severely infected bed bug infestation.

The above bed bug infestation map shows the spread of bed bugs pest that is almost throughout the United States. But the concentration or largest colony of bed bugs is in the east coast of America, especially New York.

Not long ago, pest-control giant Terminix released has released reports which showed that New York for the second year in a row is a city that most reported of bed bugs cases. But the actual report was not surprising because New York is a densely populated metropolis with well-publicized infestations everywhere from apartment buildings to businesses such as department stores, magazine offices, and even Lincoln Center.

Terminix reported an increase in bed bug infestations in most states during the past year (2010), partly because clients are more aware and on the lookout for the small insect.

The company’s list of most bed bug-plagued cities, based on customer complaints validated by Terminix and infestations discovered during pest calls:

1. New York
2. Cincinnati
3. Detroit
4. Chicago
5. Philadelphia
6. Denver
7. Washington, D.C.
8. Los Angeles
9. Boston
10. San Francisco
11. Columbus, Ohio
12. Dayton, Ohio
13. Baltimore
14. Louisville, Ky.
15. Dallas

This is the second year Terminix has put out a list. Baltimore, Dallas and San Francisco appear on it for the first time this year, replacing Indianapolis, Cleveland and Minneapolis.

Bed bugs have always been around, especially since strong chemicals such as DDT were banned But today people are more aware and communicating about the issue. But, the hotels are still reluctant to let customers know about infestations, because that would prevent potential customers. So it can be very difficult to gather accurate information on the extent of bed bug infestation.

Bed Bug Registry

The Bed Bug Registry is ( a free, public database of user-submitted bed bug reports from across the United States and Canada. Founded in 2006, the site has collected about 20,000 reports covering 12,000 locations.

The Bed Bug Registry exists to give travelers and renters a reliable and neutral platform for reporting their encounters with bed bugs. Though most Americans have still never come across one, these retro pests are spreading extremely quickly across American and Canadian cities.

Bed bugs are easy to transport in luggage and very hard to get rid of. For this reason they have become an especial nuisance for hotels, dorms, hospitals, movie theaters, libraries, and other public spaces. You can’t tell whether a building or hotel room has them based on cleanliness – the bugs can thrive anywhere there are cracks and crevices to hide in.

Until a reliable, safe pesticide becomes available, avoiding bed bug encounters will be the only reliable way to ensure they don’t spread into your own home.
