Keeping Pests Out of Hotels
Pests such as bed bugs not just ruin your guest’s stay, but also their future interaction with your brand.

Hotels and motels cannot say to their guests to stay at the corner and check their luggage for bed bugs that they carry from other hotels or from home. Therefore, employees must be on the front line and must have the ability to recognize problems. Educated maintenance and housekeeping staff is the one that is likely to discover the problems.
Bed bugs are thinking crafty and have the ability to easily find hiding spots in inhospitable locations. Hotels pests need to conserve energy, so they stay near places that guests visit regularly in the hotel room. To prevent bed bugs, housekeeping and maintenance staff should search thoroughly the areas with five foot radius from the couch and bed inside the hotel room.
