5 things you need to know about hotel rooms article, includes Bedbugs [again] but not for the “right” reason.

USAtoday is out with [another] headline grabbing story. They hope it will grab readers [it must have worked, because here I am talking about it], but the facts are a little light. “McPaper” has always been accused of being light on substance in the “news” department, but this article seems designed to just be a PR/support piece for union-housekeepers in the major cities…. with a little “hate” for BedBugs thrown into the mix. I guess I’m overly sensitive, but these “5 myths about hotel housekeeping” do NOT really seem to be…. Umm… myths…. And the “facts about Bedbugs” are missing.

I’m not disputing the thesis that hotel housekeeping isn’t a tough and tedious job. Just like the old joke about how people drive rental cars, everyone uses hotel rooms like that too. I get it, but isn’t that the “job description”. Come on! We all know “sanitation engineers”, chemical plant workers and other “nasty jobs” exist. In fact, “TV regular guy”, Mike Rowe has found TV fame with a “Dirty Jobs” show on the Discovery Channel that does nothing but celebrate these “your life could be worse” jobs of all types. Watch episodes HERE

So back we return to the USA today article that you can read HERE. I spend a LOT of time in hotel rooms, both literally and figuaratively [since I am Mr BedBug after all] I do like the idea of a “tip envelope” for housekeeping, and […]

Everyone wants to be a “star” in Hollywood… even Bedbugs

Everyone knows Hollywood is full of creeps and pests that seem to come out each night. Usually it’s the two-legged kind with a fancy suit, a leased car, and a good story to tell, but now you can add REAL pest to the list….. BedBugs. Los Angeles is on the list of the Top 10 Most BedBug Infested Cities. It’s not the PR that the Mayor, the Chamber of Commerce or the Film Commission is proud of, but Mr BedBug, the Chief SpokesBug for is excited. Since every other “character” in LA gets work in TV/movies, he thinks he should too. Just like the other “wanna-be stars, MrBedBug has a TV channel on YouTube and the required FaceBook and Twitter-Toy followers too.

Mr BedBug is not a celebrity you’ll see any starlets hanging around with, at least not on purpose. That doesn’t change the “headline”. The celebrity-filled city of Los Angeles [and the Hollywood hills too] is #3 on the list of the Most BedBug Infested Cities in America. The bug-guys at Terminix want to sell you pest control services, so they publish the Top 100 BedBug Infested Cities list each year, and LA is a “Top 10” winner. When Telly Savalas asked “who loves ya, baby?” Mr BedBug said: I do! I do !

BedBugs are a national epidemic and these webpages at BedBug News Reports are here to help you learn from the mistakes of others. BedBugs do […]

BedBugs in Los Angeles “bug” renters….and LandLords

Los Angeles is on the Top 10 BedBug Infested Cities list for a reason. They are everywhere, including the glittery hills of Hollywood. When tenants, landlords and the LA County Health Department can’t work together it creates “drama in Tinsle-town”.

This news report by Ana Gargia of NBC4 TV News is pretty common, and there is a lot to learn about BedBugs… and how to deal with a BedBug infestation in Los Angeles.

Lets start with the tenant(s). Early detection is key. The earlier you are aware of the BedBugs, the easier it is to KILL them. They did the right things, just not effectively. The first indication of trouble most homeowners [in all of the Top 100 BedBug Infested cities] notice is the red-bump, BedBug bite marks. [We will talk about the use of those “insect foggers, later in this post.]

Next, Lets talk about the landlord. BedBug infestations are expensive to deal with. Hotels/Motels don’t like the cost, when they are accused of being a source of Bedbugs. Airlines, movie theaters and other public places don’t like claims of BedBugs either, but they are a reality. BedBugs are everywhere in Los Angeles. In fact, Mr BedBug, [the Chief SpokesBug for] has his own TV Channel, MrBedBugTV at YouTube, because he has dreams of “stardom”, like every other semi-celebrity arriving on a bus from Paluka-Ville.] A landlord with BedBug problems needs to read the newsletter -13 Things every Landlord should Know about BedBugs at It’s a good “script” for tenants to read too. Essentially, […]
