Recently, there has been a growing concern about the spread of bed bugs from France to the UK. As these pests easily arrive with travellers, they’re already crossing borders and establishing themselves further afield.

This will prove to be a real challenge for the hospitality sector and hotels, in particular.

Bed bug prevention and eradication efforts will be crucial to ensure that rooms, or in the worst case scenario, a whole establishment become infected and have to be taken off the market.

Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. They’re notorious for infesting beds, bedding and furniture which makes them a real threat to hotel bedrooms.

Early warning signs of a bed bug infestation

Detecting an infestation early is key to preventing a full-blown problem.

Common Signs include:

  • Red, itchy welts on the skin of those affected.
  • Tiny, reddish-brown bugs in bedding, mattress seams or nearby areas.
  • Rust-coloured or black faecal spots on sheets, pillows or mattresses.
  • Small white eggs and shed skeletons.

How does the Bed Bug Lifecycle occur?

The bed bug life cycle unfolds over a span of 4 to 12 weeks. Bed bugs are notorious for their ability to withstand traditional treatments, which don’t always prevent the eggs from hatching even if the adults have been dealt with.

To effectively rid your space of these persistent pests, our treatment lasts the total length of the bed bug lifecycle, ensuring the complete eradication of both adults and their eggs.

Can your hotel really afford not to act?

A hotel can face substantial costs when dealing with a bed bug infestation.

These could well include expenses for pest control, replacing items, and potential legal issues. The biggest costs however, are the prospect of un-let rooms, together with the harm to the hotel’s reputation, which can lead to a drop off in business long term.

To avoid these issues and costs, hotels should focus now on prevention and quick treatment before the bugs’ almost inevitable arrival.
