Nobody likes sleeping with bedbugs, and you better believe that people don’t like doing this at hotels. Unfortunately, a new report has been released and it shows that the number of bedbugs in NYC hotels has completely skyrocketed. So, if you are thinking about staying in NYC hotels, then you might want to think again. Anyway, here are a few facts about this that you might want to know.
FIRST FACT: A 44 PERCENT INCREASE IN BEDBUGS
A study was conducted by the Bed Bug registry, and they showed that there has been a 44 percent increase in the amount of bedbugs in NYC since January 15th. Also, the bed bug removal businesses have seen their work go up dramatically over the last year. As a matter of fact, Stuart Aust, a bed bug doctor, stated that they have seen their business rise nearly 300 percent since last year.
SECOND FACT: NYC NOW ONE OF THE MOST INFESTED
When people talk about NYC, they mention words like large, illustrious, and prestigious. However, a new word that people are going to need to call this city is infested. As of right now, they are one of the heaviest infested cities in the world. This becomes a major issue for people who are hotel hopping because they are exposed to the bedbugs more than other people. All you can do is check the mattresses of the hotels for critters.
THIRD FACT: BEDBUGS WON’T MAKE YOU SICK
The only thing that bedbugs are going to do is bite you, but they won’t make you sick. The only true way you could get an infection is if you don’t stop scratching the bite. As long as you apply cream to it, and don’t itch it, you can rest in the fact that you won’t get sick. Now, this doesn’t make bedbugs any more appealing, but they are not deadly.
