While it [bed bug prevention] is often deemed too expensive, it shouldn't be, when you consider the 'true cost' of an infestation."

College Planning & Management - April 2019 Issue

Preventing and Treating Bed Bug Infestations in Residence Halls

by Joseph Latino

College dorms are among the top 10 hiding places for bed bugs. Prevention is preferable to treatment when dealing with this pest.

The 2018 “Bugs Without Borders” survey conducted by the National Pest Management Association found that college dormitories are the seventh most common place pest management professionals (PMPs) found bed bugs. (Single-family homes are the most common, followed by apartments/condominiums and hotels/motels). Forty-five percent of PMPs reported treating for bed bugs in college dorms. And, three of four PMPs say that bed bugs are the #1 most difficult pest to control.

College dormitories experience significant human traffic, and contain personal belongings, equipment, furnishings and décor that provide harborage near potential hosts (humans). Often the student’s bed is the center of activity—used for studying, relaxing, and eating, in addition to sleeping. Plus, dorm rooms are typically small—and cluttered, giving the bugs more places to hide and making it harder to get rid of them. This combination puts dorms in the “high risk” category for bed bug infestations.

Key to Bed Bug-Free Hotels

 

STUDY FROM ORKIN, A nationwide pest control company, found that eight of 10 hotels had dealt with bed bugs in the past year, and 40 percent had treated for bed bugs in the past month.

The hotel industry is particularly vulnerable to bed bug infestations due to two important factors, namely, bed bug "biology and behavior" and hotel "biology and behavior." The biology of bed bugs requires them to have a blood meal (preferably humans), and their behavior often is to hitchhike to new sources for their sustenance. The hotel community "biology" survives on frequent guests who, unfortunately, may be carrying bed bugs. The guest’s "behavior" is to stay a relatively short period of time and move on – possibly with bed bugs as their travel companion.

Allergy Technologies, Manufacturer of ActiveGuard, Named a Supply Partner by Hilton Supply Management

ActiveGuard Mattress Liners are the ONLY EPA-registered Product Labeled for Two-Year Prevention of Bed Bug Infestations

AMBLER, Pa. – January 3, 2019 – Allergy Technologies LLC, a leading science-based manufacturer of innovative, effective, consumer-friendly pest control products, has been named a supply partner by Hilton Supply Management, the global supply chain partner for more than 6,000 properties, including Hilton and non-Hilton-branded hotels. Allergy Technologies is the manufacturer of ActiveGuard® Mattress Liners, the only EPA-registered, proactive product labeled to prevent bed bug infestations for two years. They are the first mattress liners to work against bed bugs – even new, more resistant strains. In hotel use for years, ActiveGuard-based preventive programs have proven to reduce infestations as much as 90 percent or more.

ActiveGuard liners kill bed bugs in or on mattresses and box springs and are effective in both active and preventive bed bug control strategies. Maintenance-free and non-disruptive to hotel operating efficiencies, the liners work 24/7 for two years protecting both guests and bedding from bed bugs. ActiveGuard comes in four bed sizes and are easily installed by one person.

Extensively evaluated in field studies, ActiveGuard’s ability to save hoteliers hundreds of thousands of dollars in operational expense while preserving brand reputation is well documented in “Do Not Disturb,” an editorial by Jeff Fenner in the June 15, 2016 PCT Magazine Bed Bug Supplement. In a large convention hotel that is part of a major brand hotel chain, ActiveGuard installed on box springs facility-wide (1,600 rooms) was successful in preventing infestations over a two-year period while providing protection against potential bed bug related litigation.

“Bed bugs are a pest that notoriously plague properties with high client turnover, which makes proactively addressing the bed bug resurgence even more critical for hotels,” added Joseph Latino, President of Allergy Technologies.  “The financial benefits of preventing bed bugs are clear: reducing operational expenses, increasing hotel revenues, preserving the hotel’s reputation, enhancing guest confidence and reducing legal liability.”

Allergy Technologies offers the only performance guarantee against bed bugs when using ActiveGuard to prevent infestations. For a period no longer than two years from the time of purchase, if one or more bed bugs are found in contact with an ActiveGuard Mattress Liner and continue to be alive after seventy-two hours of contact, Allergy Technologies will either replace the liner at no cost to the property or reimburse the property for their purchase price of the liner. For more details about the guarantee, please visit the Allergy Technologies website at www.AllergyTechnologies.com.
