New York City hotels are fighting a tiny menace that makes life miserable for guests. Bed bugs have packed their bags and moved in to some of the top hotels in the city.
The tiny bloodsuckers infiltrate bedding, walls, drawers, curtains, suitcases, tote bags, clothing, or anything else they can attach themselves to for a free ride to a new destination. Upon arrival the bed bugs set up housekeeping, then wait for the food buffet – which is the guests – to arrive.
Bed bugs can bite multiple times leaving red, itchy welts. While not disease carriers, some people do have an allergic reaction.
According to a report from the Bedbug Registry, New York has experienced an increase in bed bug complaints of over 44 percent in two years. This is alarming as the hotels used for the report are members of the Hotel Association of New York City.
Out of 272 association members, a whopping 65 percent had received at least one bed bug complaint. Another 18 hotels had a total of 363 bug complaints which equals 42 percent.
NYC bed bug control is at the top of the list for members of the association and to fight the insects, they have implemented anti-bedbug programs.
