    Having scanned the site, I'm now rethinking my Manhattan hotel preferences after reading about what I've been sleeping with.

    Once a property is listed on this web site, it will never be deleted. Even if the property has taken action to solve the problem. I live in Vancouver, and our condo is listed as well as most other condo's and apartments in Vancouver. We contacted the site owner and was told that it would not be removed. The more properties listed the better for them, as they make their money from the advertising on that web site, more is better than less for them. Truth and honesty does not win out.

    I use it as a check point for hotel selection but take into account # of recent reports & property responses. Certain cities have major problems so you should always check...esp in Vegas & NYC. High end properties will take steps to rid the BB's but they are tough to eradicate, without spending a lot of time & money. Tossing bedding isn't the solution as they can live in carpeting, wood & luggage racks & can be dormant for 6 months! No matter where I stay, I ALWAYS PULL BACK THE SHEETS AT THE HEADBOARD AREA & CHECK. Bringing those critters home is something you want to avoid at all costs!

    If uncertain, call hotel & ask if they have had any recent reports & what their policy is (do they just move you down the hall or what.)

    i always put my bags into the bath tub. away from any carpet or other "fiber" material. you're right, once you bring them home, its a far bigger problem.

    Never thought of that idea, but it is certainly a good one, now if I only remember to take them out of the bathtub B 4 I shower:D

    Seems that almost every hotel I've ever been to is on the list. I've never been bitten by a bed bug that I'm aware of.

    Had not considered the tub:D I put mine on hard surface areas, be it in the entry (marble tile floor) or granite counter tops & if neither of those options available & whole room is carpeted, in the bathroom. So far, no problems but I'm pretty vigilant: better to be overly cautious than horribly sorry!

    I was not sure what they look like so I googled them. Yuck! I have traveled alot and I guess I am lucky I have never experienced bed bugs that I know of. The pictures I saw are magnified. Can they be seen with the naked eye very easily?
