Bed Bugs Reported At 7 Las Vegas Hotels And Strip Resorts
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…except for bed bugs.
Those little critters will follow you home if you happen to catch them on a trip to Sin City. And the likelihood of that happening seems to have increased recently, according to a report from 8NewsNow.
Las Vegas hotels that have had bed bugs in the last 18 months.
Several Las Vegas hotels were reported to have found bed bugs on their property, according to public health records. Some of them are major resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. Locations listed included Circus Circus Hotel & Casino, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino, Palazzo, Tropicana Las Vegas, MGM Grand and Sahara Las Vegas.
While all of these hotels have had reports of bed bugs in the last year and a half, Circus Circus is the hotel that appeared the most often on the list of bed bug reports. And, according to 8NewsNow, Planet Hollywood has had a report of the blood-thirsty insects as recently as June.
Nevada law does not fine or otherwise penalize a hotel property for a report of bed bugs. As long as the company is quick to act. Hotels are fined, however, if they have several reports of the infestation and fail to take action against the issue.
How to check for bed bugs when you visit a hotel.
With the high volume of tourists Las Vegas gets every year, it is virtually impossible to avoid bed bugs being brought in to our hotels. Anyone planning to stay in any hotel should be diligent about checking for bed bugs. Common signs of an infestation include dark spots on the mattress, or feces or carcasses. The best places to check for these things are the seams of mattresses and any crevices in the bed frame and box spring.
