Brought home bed bugs from hotel
Question: I have a suspicion that I brought home bed bugs from a hotel I was in for work a week ago. I woke up the last morning in the hotel with several bites on me. I figured they were spider bites. But then after being home over the last few days, my husband has been getting a few bites in the night as well, and I feel like I’ve gotten new bites since I was in the hotel last week. I do not see any visual evidence of bed bugs. I haven’t seen any “live” bugs crawling. I’ve looked everywhere. Do I need to have someone come and fumigate?
Answer: Yes, the best way is to contact Orkin to set up a comprehensive bed bug inspection. Bed bugs are flat insects and can crawl in very tight spaces. Often we do not see them because they are in hiding during the day and only come out at night to feed. Bed bug control is very difficult and time consuming. It is often better to let a professional who has received extensive training handle this job. When it comes to bed bugs, you do not want to miss any of them during treatments.
Orkin has been trained to recognize the signs of bed bug infestations while conducting a very thorough inspection. He or she will then develop a detailed treatment plan upon analyzing and assessing the situation in your home.
