Bed Bugs in Virginia Beach

Say it isn’t so!

Let’s start from the beginning.  A year ago, I met someone who worked for a local exterminating company.  His specialty?  Checking Virginia Beach hotel rooms for bed bugs.

EW.

My big question?  “Do these hotels still rent rooms that they know contain bed bugs?”

He replied while nodding furiously, “Oh YEAAAAA.”

EW.

Last night?  I had a conversation with someone who recently quit a Virginia Beach hotel cleaning job.  I asked, “What was the grossest thing you saw while cleaning rooms?”  The answer is not something I care to print, other than to reference two girls and six military guys.  Apparently, that setup is a normal thing.

EW.

Back to bed bugs.  I asked, “Did you ever see any bed bugs?”

The answer?  “Oh yea, there was a rule about that.  If you find three bed bugs, you do nothing.  But if you see four you use a special cover on the mattress.”

EW.  EW.  EW.  EW.

Kinda makes, “Night night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite” mean just a little more, don’t cha think?

Even before knowing this, I would not have slept in an oceanfront hotel room on a bet.  But now?  Not for a million TRILLION bucks.  Or my own Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee maker.  Even if his name is Fernando.

Have you ever hooked up with six military guys?   Oops.  I mean… “Do you go to hotels?   Do you check for bed bugs, and if so, how?

    That’s crazy! If one of the housekeepers at my hotel finds even one bed bug, we take the room out of service for two weeks while we fumigate the room. I’m sorry to hear other dont do that too.

    Bwhahahahahaha! Katherine, that CRACKED ME UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG….it’s so ironic you posted this because about four months ago, we got a notice from the property manager of my apartment building that one of the tenants discovered BED BUGS in their apartment. How they got there I have no idea (probably a used mattress?). But we were told that if we discovered any in OUR apartments we were to contact them immediately so that they could fumigate our unit. Fortunately, I discovered none. But I was so paranoid for weeks!

    That is why we have a camper – to avoid the bedbugs (and the military guys).

  • Ewwwwwww! And the answer to your questions is: just once, but there were extenuating circumstances, yes, and I haven’t in the past but I will now!! 🙂

    Schmucks.

    Ummmmm……the hotel managers AND the six military guys.
    SHAME on all of ’em!

    *shaking head*

    Nope, never discovered a bed bug in a hotel.
    Honestly never thought to look….until NOW.
    And we’ve stayed on ocean front hotels EVERY TIME we journey east or west.

    Wow…..hard to believe we’ve stayed at schmuck-less hotels every time!!  Woohooo US!!
    😀

  • Yes I do stay in hotels and no I’ve not seen bedbugs.  I did see a tick once, though.  Gross!
