There's a Wiki page about bed bugs and pest control that doesn't have any info yet.
Does anyone have recommendations for specific chemicals or procedures for bedbug control that we could add to the Wiki?
Proposed content for the Wiki page -- please provide feedback :)
- Don't ever mention the word "bedbugs" at the front desk or anywhere within earshot of guests
- Have all the guests in the infested room run all their clothes/linens through the clothes dryer on high heat to kill the bugs/eggs. (no charge, obviously)
- Shut down the room and treat it (this part of the Wiki page should have specific steps on what to spray and how to do it safely)
- Refund the guest(s) for their stay, or at least a few nights. Keep them happy to reduce the chance of them writing horrible bedbug reviews that might show up in Google. (Even the best hostels/hotels can't always avoid bedbugs.)
Chemicals mentioned previously include Pest Master and Solfac Pro.
Gordo had a good tip about rotating chemicals.
Any other tips? After I make a basic outline, anyone will be able to edit the Wiki page.
