The season of traveling for the holidays will begin soon and if you are staying in hotels and motels,bed bugs are on a rise and love traveling around luggage and around your room.

Many businesses in the hospitality industry are doing a great job in taking action to protect their guests when dealing with bed bugs. Hotels also are working with pest management companies to quickly get rid of any pests and solve their bed bug problems quickly. However, there have also been many cases where hotel management do not know that their hotels have bed bugs and their staff do not as well.


A recent case near the International Los Angeles Airport not only had a bed bug problem but their staff will be on strike and protesting. The hotel will be protesting the disciplinary actions that were given to a housekeeper because she failed to spot bed bugs and failure in doing so have increased their workload.
