Are Bed Bugs stealing from your business?

Bed Bugs can be an extremely expensive problem for any business.   Many people mistakenly think that hotels/motels are the only businesses at risk for a bed bug infestation.  This false thinking has caused many businesses and employees anxiety and lost profits.  In the past 10 years we have seen bed bug infestations in movie theaters, on public transportation, in hospitals, and of course in hotels and motels.  It only takes one person that has been exposed to bed bugs to spread an infestation to a new location.  That means that every office and business location is potentially at risk.  Luckily ProChem ProActive has the simple and effective solution to keep your business pest free!

In the story above, you can see how bed bugs have invaded an unsuspecting business and caused damage to their reputation.  Once people see a report like this, they are much less likely to want to visit that business for fear that they will bring bed bugs home with them.  Even a rumor of bed bugs can cause a drastic drop in business.  Business owners need to stay proactive against bed bugs and perform routine inspections multiple times per year to avoid any bed bug sightings.  The biggest mistake a business can make when dealing with a bed bug issue is not acting fast enough.  Even a single bed bug sighting should result in a full professional bed bug inspection.  If the proper treatment is applied quickly, the issue can be solved before your customers hear about it.

In addition to lost business and a ruined reputation, a bed bug infestation can also result in expensive lawsuits.  For more information, visit our “Bed Bugs in Court” article here…(Link).
