Every year, it seems, there's a news story about bedbugs in this or that hotel. Well, if you don't think hoteliers take this problem seriously, think again. In September, the American Hotel and Lodging Association and the National Pest Management Association sponsored the International Bed Bug Symposium. The one-day meeting at the Hilton Washington Dulles Hotel had a full agenda on the unwelcome little critters. Sessions included: The Nitty Gritty of Bed Bug Inspection and The Legal Implications of Bed Bug Resurgence.
