The Most Common Hotel Pests and Their Signs
It is extremely important to be able to recognize the signs you may be under a pest invasion so you can deal with them before it becomes a serious issue—it is also a good idea to get your staff together for a short training course in spotting the telltale signs of the more common pest invasions so they know what to look for.
Many people wrongly believe that bedbugs can only be found in dirty places, but the truth is that as they feed on blood alone, they can live in almost any home or hotel. Some signs that your hotel might be becoming infested with bedbugs are small, rusty-colored stains on the bedding from either the bites they’ve inflicted on their host or their excrement and a sweet but musty smell in the bedroom, especially near the headboard.
Rats & mice
When choosing a place to settle, rats and mice usually look for two things: a steady and accessible supply of food and water, as well as good places to hide around the property. Unfortunately, hotels fit these criteria perfectly. If you’ve found any boxes, sacks, wires or cables that look like they have been chewed through, observed small piles of dark droppings in certain places, or heard unexplained chattering or scratching noises in the attic or the walls/floor, you can be pretty sure rats or mice have moved into your hotel.
Silverfish are in fact relatively to humans, as they do not bite or transmit disease—still, it is unlikely your guests want to watch them scamper around the bathroom as they try to relax in the tub. Silverfish can also cause substantial property damage by chewing through things like linen and paper.
