Imagine the excitement of finally being able to take a family vacation to Hollywood, Florida to enjoy some fun, rest & relaxation. You arrive at your destination, put your suitcases down and start planning out everything you want to do during this vacation but all of the sudden something catches your eyes. Something is moving under the bed sheets.
This is the case for a family who booked an Airbnb home that was infested with bed bugs. The Airbnb is a hospitality service that rents or leases hotel rooms and vacation homes.
Unfortunately for this family they got more then they bargained for. Beautiful beach home, basically everything was upgraded, and when they pulled up the bed sheets the bed bugs were literally crawling all over the place.
The family reported the issue to the property manager and they brought over some bed bug sprays that weren’t effective. Bed bugs are becoming resistant to many pesticides so many home owners and pest control companies are turning to residual bed bug sprays to get rid of these nasty little pests.

But bed bugs are hard to get rid of, and the spray didn’t do the job.
