[QUOTE=Dopey;1047538]Ok, that is just another way to be dramatic. I only read the first post in Buzz’s link there and you can get rid of bedbugs by buying the protective covers, you know the zippered things that cover the entire mattress and box springs, so that you’ll starve those things and they can’t escape.
I check my mattresses and box springs after every guest. If there were any little critters, they would be easy to see[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Dopey;1047539]ok so the advice is: before you lay your tired body into any foreign bed, meaning not your bed, lift the sheets and look around the edging and in the corners of the mattress. If you see dark little spots and creepy crawlies, call the front desk[/QUOTE]
I think all of the media hype about bed bugs this week is over the top, however when I read about someplace that I’ve stayed having them, I want to :blow:! Yuck! It’s good to know that there are good, responsible innkeepers like you, Iris. DH has to travel next week to the Orlando area for work, and I’ve already been telling him to check for any little critters before getting settled in his room. I don’t want any of those boogers coming into my house!
