Performing an Initial Check for Bed Bugs in Ramada Hotel Rooms
Before settling in, you’ll need to perform an initial bed bug check to guarantee your room is infestation free. Bed bugs are visible throughout all stages of their life from eggs to adults, and if they aren’t physically present, you can still see evidence of an infestation in the form of red-colored waste or black ink-dot looking spots that they leave behind in many cases.
Step 1: Inspect the room thoroughly before unpacking.
Be sure to check every inch of the room for bugs.
Step 2: Check for evidence of infestation.
It’s essential to check for any signs of bed bugs. Check for eggs, live bugs, and any forms of waste left behind.
Step 3: Inspect specific locations
Do not settle in before checking the bed bug hot spots.
These common spots include:
- bed sheets
- mattress seams
- under the mattress
- behind baseboards and headboards
- all other furniture
Step 4: If you find bed bugs, notify management
First, document the infestation by taking photographs of all evidence found. Take photographs not just of the bed bugs but also any fecal stains, nests, and shell casings found. Look to book another room or check out of the hotel completely.
If booking another room in the same hotel, be sure it’s in an uninfested part of the hotel. You’re better off booking a room in a different hotel. This way you’re guaranteed to be safe from encountering another infestation in a Ramada hotel room.
