Rodents – mice and rats are an issue in most countries of the world and many industries. They multiply very fast and can destroy and contaminate food, can chew on wires and other items in the hotel, can make a lot of mess but also transmit a lot of dangerous diseases.
Bed Bugs – these are very common in lots of hotels and hospitality facilities and even a single bug noticed by a visitor can hurt the reputation of the venue. Not only are they are unpleasant to see, but they also feed on the blood of humans and animals. The female bed bug can lay hundreds of tiny eggs over her lifetime, meaning these nasty insects can multiply very fast, and quickly invade your hotel. Luckily bed bugs don’t transmit diseases, yet they still need to be taken care of as soon as possible.
Spiders – even though most species do not bite humans or transmit diseases, they are still very unpleasant to see and many people have a fear of these creatures. They usually lurk in corners and hidden places and create their webs, and that’s why it is very important for cleaning staff to always clean every nook and cranny in a hotel room.
Cockroaches – Not only they are disgusting to see, but they are also destructive, resilient and can cause health issues. They are usually associated with filth and clutter, and can spread rapidly. Most species have a bad odour, while others even produce sound. They prefer to feed on sweets, starches, greasy foods and meat, but they can also consume books, paper, wallpaper paste and more. While they do not bite humans directly, they can spread 33 types of bacteria, including the dangerous Salmonella and E. coli. Their droppings and shed skins can create asthma and allergy symptoms in children.
