They can cause massive, large-scale infestations relatively quickly and often require repeated treatments until they can be completely removed from a location. Since they spread so easily (usually by clinging to personal items)  vigilance is important in order to keep them out of your home. Even some of the best hotels in the south can find themselves with a bedbug infestation during the warmer months when visitor traffic is high and humans are in close, dense proximity.  It’s important for anyone hoping to spend time…
