The bed bug registry is a tool to help travellers avoid bed bugs. It is a list of hotels that have been confirmed to have bed bugs, across North America. It’s a useful tool to ensure you’re staying in bed bug free places. Since travelling is a well-documented way for bed bugs to get into your home, the bed bug registry can help reduce the risk of taking home bed bugs. Remember to take precautions to prevent bed bugs when travelling regardless.
The bed bug registry is not intended to condemn hotels that have had bed bugs, but rather inform citizens of places where bed bugs are currently active, and therefore should be avoided until the bed bug problem is sorted out. Since bed bugs problems are always popping up, the bed bug registry offers a quick way to give yourself peace of mind if you’re concerned about coming into contact with bed bugs. If a hotel has had a bed bug exterminator in for bed bug extermination, and the problem is eliminated, the listing is taken down.
The bed bug registry features listings across North America. Users submit sightings to the site, keeping the information current. Larger cities in Canada, such as Toronto and Ottawa have well-updated information, however it’s important to keep in mind the bed bug registry is user-generated, so it’s not all inclusive nor are the reports verified, so false bed bug sightings can occur.
To check out the status of a hotel you’ll be visiting, visit thebedbugregistry.com. You can also sign up for alerts that tell you about bed bug sightings near you, or download an app for quick checking whenever you travel.
