BedBugs in Las Vegas hotels are gaining a reputation for sending visitors home with unpleasant memories. The last thing a convention/vacation-travel destination needs is to give planners one more reason to reconsider choosing a different location, but the new report by the franchise national pest control company has done just that. Las Vegas is #3 on the 2013 “Top 10 Most BedBug Infested Cities . Sacramento and Milwaukee have nothing to brag about either. They were #1 and #2.

In fairness, the larger cities and metro areas have a greater chance of getting on this “dis-honor” list, because the pest control company counts customer complains/inspections in their sales office reports, nation-wide, so Reno [for example] isn’t as like to take the PR-hit as Las Vegas. The news is actually worse than at 1st glance. Las Vegas is not only #3, but also on a sub-list of cities with the fastest growing BedBug infestation RATES. Service calls were up in L-V by 50% over just last year.

I am Mr BedBug [Chief SpokesBug for FLfresh.com] The more you know about “my” BedBug family, the more you’ll understand “why” Bedbugs in Las Vegas are a huge problem. BedBugs are hitch-hikers. They cling to any fabric that smells like a human, so no matter how clean our hotel/convention industry keeps the “house”, every facility is only one “check-in” away from another “I got BedBugs in Las Vegas” story. We frequently cycle lots of people in/out of hotels. That’s good for the Las Vegas economy, but also good for BedBugs. They arrive in the jacket pocket of a visitor from Who-Cares-where-ville, or are picked up on an airline seat. A perfectly clean hotel room on The Strip, in OldTown or your guest bedroom becomes a new infestation. BedBugs follow visitors from the hotel room to the clubs, theaters, any seating area or retail store. The cabs, buses and Monorail are moving people all day and night… it is impossible to do a CSI-LasVegas DNA-Fingerprint test on BedBugs to determine where they came from, so ALL of Las Vegas gets the blame.

Here is the crowning topper. Tasty-humans each react differently to a BedBug bite. Some folks will wake up with red-swollen bite-marks within 3-4 hours of a member of my BedBug family have an all-you-can-eat buffet “blood-meal”. Most commonly the reaction takes 18-24 hours before it is noticed. Very few tasty-humans can determine exactly where they were, when the “feeding” took place. At home in Who-Cares-Where-ville, a Bedbug infestation in their home is embarrassing, but hard to pin-point “blame”. Travelers will always ASSUME they are the victim, but the “carrier” they very well could be. As Mr BedBug, it is my job to deliver ALL the BedBug News Reports, not just the ones you want to hear.
