What Are Common Pests Found In Hotels
When it comes to hotels, there are many different types of pests that can cause an infestation. You will oftentimes not only see insects, but rodents (such as mice and rats) as well. When you do see an infestation of mice or rats you need to act fast because they can cause major damage to your structure and spread disease throughout your hotel.
Hospitality facilities, which include hotels and motels, often see infestations of flies and cockroaches. These particular bugs are attracted to odors from food and trash. A lot of the time these infestations start after being brought in on the luggage or the hotel guests themselves. Cockroaches and especially flies can also simply come in through open spaces, such as doors and windows when they are looking for shelter or food.
Bed Bugs Are Also Pests We Often See In The Hospitality Industry
Everyone has heard of bed bugs. They are probably the most feared pest by hotel owners and hotel guests alike, and for good reason! Bed bugs are a parasite that feeds on human blood and they set up their home in the places their hosts frequent. In this situation, their hosts are us and the places they set up their homes are beds.
Hotels and motels are easy targets for bed bug infestations because a lot of humans frequent these facilities and are easy places for them to set up their homes. Most people that go to hotels and motels do it for lodging and sleep overnight.
This is the time bed bugs feed.
Again, the large number of guests that are passing through on a daily basis come from many different areas with many different types of pests. The guests could easily be carrying bed bugs in and out with them as they scurry from one place to another.
