Would you stop staying in motels if there were a chance you'd be infested with bedbugs?

Big problem in NYC ....

Glad we have our own camper --

  • Yes there has always been a chance, but that chance has greatly increased in the last couple years. We own 18 rental units and have had issues in one so far and we think we tracked it to furniture the tenant rented from one of those rent to own places and the exterminator said they are getting ALOT more calls. I have always stripped the beds and checked even before this, but the occasional time we do stay in a hotel we definitely are going over it well before sleeping in the bed. Those buggers are hard to get rid of.

  • You can stay in the best hotels and still get bedbug, lice. It all depend on who stayed there before you.
