In recent years we’ve all become more aware what chemicals can do to our bodies and our environment. From the ingredients in the paint we use, to our face cream and fragrances and vehicle exhaust, there’s no denying that the world is a safer place than it was 100 years ago.

Each year, more court cases claiming “negligence” against property managers and hotel/motel owners pop up. These claims cost business owners a lot in settlements, damaging their reputation, sometimes beyond repair. As a business owner, you must have a plan for detecting and eliminating bed bugs in place.

Let’s look at why bed bugs spread, how buildings become infested, and how to deal with them if you find them.
