Got Bed Bugs at your Hotel? We’re the Solution!
Bed bugs can happen at even the cleanest, fanciest of hotels – just ask the famed Waldorf Astoria of New York City, they have been hit with numerous multi-million dollar law suits for bed bugs.
These brown-ish, flat, oval pests love to be where there are people and pets. Their favorite meal is blood, making us easy prey when we’re asleep. This makes hotels and motels a great place to call home. Your guests won’t think so when they wake up with signs of bed bugs on their skin.
Take Mrs. Drabicki’s hotel bed bug experience as an example
Mrs. Drabicki and her husband staying at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, woke up one morning to find red marks on her body and blood on the sheets. The couple let the hotel know about the marks and while they switched their room, that didn’t solve the problem.
She went home with over 100 marks on her body, which were identified by her doctor as bed bug bites. And while this was bad, things got worse.
The Drabickis brought the bed bugs home with them, resulting in an infestation of their home and bites to their children, causing severe allergic reactions and a visit to the emergency room.
It wasn’t Mrs. Drabicki’s fault that she was bitten by bed bugs but all too often hotels choose to blame their guests instead of handling the issue. And even if the hotel ended up not having a massive payout, the reputational damage was enormous.
Don’t be one of those hotels!

Bed Bug Prevention Tips for your Hotel or Motel
The two most effective beg bug prevention tips for your hotel or motel are to have regular room inspections and ongoing pest control service from Budget Brothers Termite & Pest.
Educate your staff on how to conduct a bed bug inspection at your hotel or motel.
Bed bugs are nocturnal so it’s not likely they will see live bugs during a regular day of cleaning rooms but there are signs of bed bugs.
- Check under mattresses and cushions, on sheets, and around the bed frame for red or rust colored smears or shed skins.
- Continue looking around baseboards and on walls for similar evidence of bed bugs.
And remember, even if your guests did bring the bed bugs with them, the nasty little bugs are now your problem too and can quickly infest the rest of your hotel.
We will inspect and recommend a course of action to get rid of these unwanted hotel guests. Let the first sign of bed bugs at your Phoenix hotel or motel be the last.
