It’s no secret that with hotels, you usually get what you pay for. However, there is one thing no hotel is immune to, and that is bed bugs. Even if you are staying at a five-star resort, there is still a possibility of bed bugs in CT. That being said, as long as you know what you are looking for, and you thoroughly inspect the room before getting comfortable, then you won’t have to worry about being bitten.
CT bed bugs are small, oval-shaped, and flat, and are usually brown in color; however, they can be red if they have just eaten. They are not easy to find because they tend to hide in any crack or crevice they can find. Oftentimes, it is the signs of an infestation that are more easy to locate, including dark red stains on the mattress or sheets, or the egg shells or fecal matter of the bed bugs.
Now that you know you are looking for, let’s go over the steps you need to follow every time you enter a Connecticut hotel room to keep yourself free from the bite of a bed bug—or the chance of them harboring in your luggage and infesting your home.
If you have completed all of the above steps and have come up clean, then you can unpack and rest easy knowing your hotel room is safe. However, if you notice even the slightest sign of a bed bug infestation, you will want to leave the room immediately and notify the hotel staff. They will want to call a professional bed bug exterminator without delay. At Richland Pest & Bee Control, we perform bed bug extermination for both commercial and residential properties in Connecticut and we would love to help them get their hotel clean again.
