Bed Bug Infestations in Hotels and Motels
Why are bed bug infestations so common in hotels and motels? Hotels and motels provide bed bugs with both a constant source of sustenance and plenty hiding spots. Some of these hiding spots include beds, bed frames, mattresses, clothes, drawers, carpets, rugs, couches, sofas, chairs, and all sorts of wooden furniture. Bed bugs are even known to hide behind picture frames, wallpaper, and floor boards, for example. These hiding spots provide bed bugs with easy access to sleeping guests – allowing them to thrive. Due to the constant influx of guests in hotels and motels, bed bugs rarely have to go without eating for extended periods of time.
Bed bug infestations are often disregarded by parties who have never directly been affected by bed bugs. A bed bug infestation should never be taken lightly. When unsuspecting parties are exposed to bed bug infestations, they can suffer significant harm. In most cases, exposure to bed bug infestations could result in bed bug bites, allergic reactions, skin infections, and significant property damage, for example. Depending on the specific details of how the victim was affected by the bed bug infestation at the hotel or motel, the victim and his or her family will likely have grounds to sue Howard Johnson for bed bugs and possibly receive compensation.
