If you are a hotel or other type of travel hot spot, you may be experiencing a break in travelers and guests. With the end of the summer season, the kids back in school, and still quite some time before the holiday season, now is the perfect time to up your ante on bed bug prevention. The travel industry is still at one of the highest threats for bed bug infestations due to the massive amount of people traveling from all over. The good news is that there are now many ways to be proactive in the fight against bed bugs.
One of the fast growing methods of effective bed bug detection is the use of trained bed bug sniffing dogs. If your business does not already take advantage of this quick and discreet method, now is the time! These canines are able to detect bed bugs within minutes and at a much higher accuracy rate than a human inspection. Canine bed bug inspections are your business’s best bet to be sure that rooms are free of any bed bugs before guests encounter them.
Not only will you have peace of mind that guests are not going to be subject to bed bug bites or the trauma of spotting bed bugs, but you will also be protecting your business’s hard earn reputation. Although bed bugs are not a sign of filth, guests will still associate a bed bug sighting to a dirty business and they are unlikely to return and are apt to share their experience on such sites as traveladvisor.com and bedbugregistry.com.
