Will your hotel room have bed bugs? Ewwwwwk!

Ok, so I'm NOT going to post pictures of the magnified bugs I saw in some online articles because if you're anything like me, you might not ever travel again!   But bed bugs are nothing to joke about.  They're in the USA at levels not seen since World war II, according to the Terminex pest control firm!   What cities have some of the worst reports?   New York, Philadelphia and Detroit.

Well, next time you travel you can do yourself a favor and check out this new website, www.bedbugregistry.com.  It's a independent website founded in 2006 where travelers, just like you and I, can post any reporting of bed bugs in hotels across the US and Canada.   At this point they have over 20,000 reports on 12,000 locations!

I did a few quick checks of places I've been and MGM in Vegas checked out clean.  The Westin downtown Indianapolis also was report free.  My last check of a Days Inn we stayed in Prescott once again was ok.  Whew, we're clean.

  1. Like to swim? Your ancestors probably did, which explains the wealth of lake- and seaside attractions in hoary cities across the globe. Two of our members, Vacation Hotels, demonstrated this week why many of these ancient havens are worth a visit. Visit best vacation Montreal Hotel in Quebec Best Western Hotel Europa
