14 Bed Bug Tips – Do’s and Don’ts

Dealing with bed bugs is not easy. Hopefully you read our last post on developing a bed bug treatment plan. Either way, here are a few bed bug tips to keep in mind if you encounter any infestations. Feel free to use these to supplement your bed bug action plan.

DON’Ts

  • Do not overreact and vacate the premises—unless the bedbugs are taking over your entire building.
  • Do not ignore it or delay taking action.
  • Do not apply pesticides (especially if you are not properly trained or knowledgeable on chemicals).
  • Do not place blame on any guests or staff.
  • Do not assume all bugs are bed bugs.
  • Do not move guests and their belongings to new rooms without first inspecting and washing their items.
  • Do not bring clean linens near dirty ones that need to be washed.

DO’s

  • Do confirm the insect is in fact a bed bug; have a professional identify the insect if necessary.
  • Do make sure anyone who comes into contact with infested areas or persons is inspected and changes to bed bug free (just laundered) clothing.
  • Do develop a plan to treat bed bug infestations.
  • Do routine inspections for bed bugs.
  • Do inspect the surrounding and common areas including rooms next door, across the hall as well as laundry rooms and cafeterias.
  • Do understand that bed bugs may not be treated by a single service visit.
  • Do make sure housekeepers always leave carts outside during room service.
