Bed Bugs In Movie Theaters

Keep bed bugs in Salt Lake City away from the big screen.

Think bed bugs are only biting people in beds? Think again! Pest control professionals in Salt Lake City want to warn businesses in the entertainment industry that bed bugs are no longer just infesting hotel rooms but movie theaters as well. In fact, many public places are now at risk for having bed bugs and what this means is that businesses need to become proactive and prevent the continued spread of bed bugs before they have a chance to hop a ride home with your guests.

Unfortunately, movie theaters are a perfect setting for bed bugs to enjoy a meal. And we’re not talking about the popcorn crumbs on the floor. Bed bugs can easily stay hidden in movie theaters either along the baseboards, in electrical outlets, or even right in the comfy upholstered chairs. When they detect carbon dioxide from humans as the lights dim and the commercials begin, they will crawl out of hiding and begin to feed on the blood of humans. Talk about a whole new meaning to dinner and a movie!

While this may sound like a gruesome horror film, the truth is that bed bugs in movie theaters are a serious threat.
