The “True” cost of bed bugs for hotel owners- from Tri-County Pest Control
For approximately another seven weeks, it remains the summer season and many Americans will be traveling and booking hotel rooms. However, lurking in the background is a huge concern of these travelers that very well may hinder or even change their plans…
According to the National Pest Management Association, more than 80% of American travelers are worried about bed bug encounters when they travel and stay in hotel rooms – believing that bed bug infestations may be increasing. The pests have become the number-one issue of hotel and motel and other hospitality proprietors across the United States. One single situation or negative review can turn into an online nightmare and essentially ruin the business going forward, potentially resulting in thousands of dollars in losses for the infested business.
According to research conducted by Lee Resources, more than 90% of dissatisfied customers will never do business with a certain establishment again. These are 90 percent of profits down the drain.
