Ah, Palm Beach Gardens, the city of golf, beaches and beautiful views. Palm Beach Gardens is becoming an up and coming hotspot for tourism with tourism leaders asking for more hotels to built in the city. Well, unfortunately, not all hotels and even those in Palm Beach Gardens take the proper precautions to ensure that their hotels are free from bed bugs. If you have suffered as a result of bed bugs while staying in a Palm Beach Gardens hotel, our firm, Bed Bug Law can guide you through the next steps.
So where do bed bugs and bed bug infestations in Palm Beach Gardens hotels come from? Majority of bed bug infestations come from other travelers. It’s extremely likely that a traveler carried bed bugs from a previous stay in another hotel, from rented furniture (or even purchased furniture) to the hotel you are staying in. Bed bugs love to hide in dark areas and within the beds of a hotel room, as they feast on human blood to survive and for nourishment.
Confirming You Found Bed Bugs in Your Palm Beach Gardens Hotel
Bed bugs are tenacious insects that can be somewhat hard to find and can also be confused with other insects. If you woke up in your hotel room and found large red patches on your skin, you may have been bitten by bed bugs. So how do you confirm you have found bed bugs?
First, bed bugs primarily hide within beds. It’s important to completely strip your Palm Beach Gardens hotel bed of any linens or other material that may be covering the mattress. Take a flashlight or use the very useful flashlight function on your phone and turn off the lights and closely inspect your bed referencing the photo below –
If you see dried dark red spots in the mattress, that is left over blood from the bed bugs feeding. If you have indeed found bed bugs, make sure that you take as many photos and video of the bed bugs and your injuries. Another step you will want to take is to notify the management of your Palm Beach Gardens hotel and document your conversations with them. If at all possible, capture the bed bugs in a secure container where they cannot be released.
