The spring break travel season is almost here! For many, this means fun in the sun while for hotel owners it means a great deal of preparation and hard work for the influx of guests. One area that hotels need to take special consideration in is in their bed bug and hotel pest control protocol. Because of the increase in travel, the likelihood of bed bug exposure also increases. Having issues with bed bugs in your hotel can greatly impact its success this spring break season.
If you do not already have a commercial pest controlservice in place then the benefits of such a program should be heavily considered. It is important to remember that bed bugs and other pests, including German cockroaches, do not necessarily invade and cause problems in hotels because there is a lack of sanitation, but rather because they are found to thrive in environments that have large amounts of people and high levels of turnover. Along with employee education, a commercial pest management program will ensure that this spring break season is successful and free from pests.
One of the most important things that you can do as a hotel owner or management is to educate your employees to understand what bed bugs and other pests look like, how they breed, where they hide, how to inspect for them and what they should do if they spot any signs of a bed bug infestation. WIth a knowledgeable staff, the chances of a bed bug infestation running rampant in your business is much less likely to occur. Having in place a bed bug response plan is a discreet and effective way for employees to respond properly to a bed bug situation or any pest issue for that matter. A properly trained staff will be able to help prevent a hotel’s name and reputation from being damaged because of pests.
