Annoying insects bother people year round. Whether it be creepy crawly insects inside the house that make your skin crawl, or stinging/biting insects that prevent you from enjoying your outdoor space – bugs are just, well, buggy.
Bed Bugs are making the news all over the place this year, especially with the warm weather that has been seen all across the country this past winter.
So we shouldn’t be surprised that ORKIN, one of the largest pest control companies in the country, is considered an expert on how to control bed bugs.
And now that it’s Spring Break, unsuspecting college kids and high school seniors are going to be traveling all over the country, and may end up bringing home a special friend or two (or three thousand) with them if they’re not careful.
And that’s one reason why Orkin decided to release their list of the TOP 50 BED BUG CITIES in AMERICA for 2011.
A few years ago, Web Watch was visiting Las Vegas with some friends. As is the case when traveling with a large group of people – especially in Vegas – we all found ourselves staying in different hotels.
And as is the case with different Las Vegas hotels, cleanliness standards can be a bit different from hotel to hotel, company to company.
So while Web Watch was enjoying our crisp, clean sheets, one member of our brigade found herself being transferred from one dirty hotel room to another until she ultimately asked to be checked into a different hotel across the way.
Apparently, maid service doesn’t always check to clear the room of used.. (ahem) … from underneath the bed.
You always see a few people in the airport, carrying their own pillows with them. For them, either the hotel pillows are never good enough, or perhaps there’s a hypo-allergenic reason to bring one’s own pillow with them.
And while travellers often fear the pillow bug, for the most part, one never thinks much about the hotel room’s bed linens. Sure, the coverlet may be a little nasty, but you’re not supposed to use that as a blanket anyway. Just throw the coverlet on the floor like everyone else does. The sheets should be clean, right?
