San Diego Bed Bug Control

35 million visitors come to San Diego each year. With that much tourism traffic, there are plenty of opportunities for bed bugs to hitch a ride.

The city of San Diego has about 550 hotel/motel properties, with over 60,000 rooms available to travelers and bed bugs alike.

The bed bug experts at Western Exterminator are San Diego's best line of defense against these pests. If you're having a bed bug problem, contact us today.

Checking for bed bugs and bed bug eggs at your San Diego hotel

hotel-bed-bugs

Bed bugs do not discriminate when it comes to a meal. Even the nicest 5-star resort can fall victim to a bed bug infestation, despite its efforts to maintain a spotless environment. The reality is, bed bugs are attracted to the heat and carbon monoxide that humans emit. Where there are humans, bed bugs will go looking for food.

When you arrive at a hotel or motel, check the following locations for bed bugs, bed bug eggs, shed skin, and blood or fecal smears:

  • Mattress seams, box spring, and bed frame crevices/joints
  • Sofas, chairs, pillows, and ottomans (especially along seams and zippers)
  • Baseboards, wardrobes, and dressers
  • Wall fixtures and night stands

Additionally, you should keep your luggage up off the floor. Place it on a luggage rack to prevent bugs from entering. If you suspect bed bug activity in your hotel room, report it to hotel staff immediately and request a room transfer. The hotel should then seek professional bed bug treatment, as a bed bug infestation in this type of environment is nothing to take lightly. Western Exterminator’s Entotherm heat treatment provides a great solution for hotel bed bug control, as it is a chemical-free method and will not compromise the health and safety of hotel guests.

Bed bug bites

Despite their unpleasant nature, bed bug bites are not harmful. Bed bugs are not known to be disease vectors, so their bite will only cause itching. These pests tend to hide away while San Diegans are awake and active. But when the humans turn in for the night, all bets are off. If you wake up to find a grouping of small red bites on your neck, hands, arms, legs, or face, there is a good chance you have bed bugs. Better call Western!
