Massachusetts bed bug alert

Summer travel season is an important time to be aware of the risks posed by bed bugs. Whether you're staying in a hotel, Airbnb, bed and breakfast, or any other type of accommodations, you should know how to inspect for bed bugs. how to inspect for bed bugs in massachusetts


  1. Lift up the sheets and look at the seams of the mattress. Bed bugs like tight spaces, so it's possible you'll find them there.
  2. Look for spotting on the mattress. Bed bug waste looks like tiny black dots. If you find this, alert the hotel management.
  3. Check the bed frame. Bed bugs prefer to be undisturbed, so they'll commonly hide within the metal frame.
  4. Keep your luggage off the ground. Use the luggage racks in the closet, if available. The last thing you want is a bed bug to hitch a ride home with you. 
  5. Ask questions. Upon check-in, ask the front desk if your room has ever had a confirmed case of bed bugs. 

A visual inspection is rarely 100% accurate. It's always advisable to rely on a pest management professional, like Burgess Pest Management, to properly inspect and treat if necessary.
