The Bed Bug Registry was founded in 2006 and says that it, “is a free, public database of user-submitted bed bug reports from across the United States and Canada,” and “the site has collected about 20,000 reports covering 12,000 locations.” It even shows an interactive map where it’s easy to spot the geographic areas that have the highest density of hotels with bed bugs.
Have You Ever Wondered If Your Hotel Has Bed Bugs?
As you would imagine, the areas where there are higher populations, there are more hotels, and it’s probably more likely to encounter bed bugs. The website even lists the hotel chains with the most reports of bed bugs, but also states on the same page, “Please remember that all reports on the Bedbug Registry are unverified – take everything you read here with a grain of salt!”
The information found on the Bed Bug Registry dates back to 2006, so its hard to find some of the information relevant in 2015. I thought the most useful information is under the heading “Recent Bed Bug Reports” found under the interactive map. Has anyone ever used this site … or made a report to it?
