Even some of the best resorts can get bedbugs. Its inevitable. Here are a few tips and facts about bedbugs. Have you seen bedbugs at a hotel? I work at a very nice and clean hotel. It was built three years ago and the housekeepers found bedbugs in one room. We were very lucky that only a few bedbugs were found and it was only contained to one room. The pest control said they could have been brought in as long as six months ago. I've learned a few things about them, more than I want to know, but its nice to know if you are traveling and have no choice but to stay at a hotel. Bedbugs can be found behind the head board and in the ridges of the mattress. They do not like the inside of the mattress because they suffocate. They don't feed all the time, so even if the hotel had it, you may not be bit. (OMG, thinking about it just makes my skin crawl). Anyone can bring bedbugs into a hotel, even someone that does not have them at home. They can be carried in from your socks or pants, so it has nothing to do with someone's poor hygiene. There are currently two methods to kill bedbugs. One treatment is to heat the room above 100*, not sure the exact temperature. They do not like extreme heat. The other method of treatment to kill bedbugs is by using a certain bug spray and waiting a few days to weeks until everything is clear. Pest controls will warranty that particular room by putting the mattress in a zip-lock like bag. That bag is well over $100 per mattress. The pest control tech did not have an answer when my boss asked why zip-lock the mattress when they live behind the headboard as well.
