Making Sure You Found Bed Bugs in Your Tallahassee Hotel

Get a flashlight or use the flashlight function on your cellphone and turn off the lights in the room.
Using the diagrams showing the appearance of bed bugs, closely inspect your mattress for any small insects and any dark brown, reddish, spots in the mattress –
You should also inspect other areas that are typically unlit like behind pictures or art, closets and drawers of furniture.
If you have found bed bugs, then it’s important to next, notify the appropriate individuals in the hotel of the infestation.
