The season is upon us, and the Holidays are a very busy time of the year for travelers and hotels alike. Family and friends gather to give thanks, break bread, share memories and make even more. The season is wonderful, but it isn’t without it’s own troubles!
The gathering of people, in any place, presents the potential for bedbug introductions. Even the icy temperatures outside do nothing to stop bedbugs from spreading, as written about in this article from the NY Times. Still, there are steps you can take to avoid bedbugs, as well as steps you can take to deal with that hitchhiker you might have brought home, and we will provide you some resources in this newsletter.
