Frederick is part of the bustling Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, and it is one of the largest cities in Maryland. It’s the home to many hotels and the U.S. Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. Nearby cities include Gaithersburg, Bethesda, and Hagerstown, and the region lies at the intersection of many major highways, including Interstate 70, Interstate 270, U.S. Route 340 and U.S. Route 40. Tourists and business travelers flock to Frederick to visit historic battlefields and homes, tour breweries and wineries and visit offices and research centers at Fort Detrick and Riverside Research Park. Around 32% of Frederick residents rent an apartment.

Unfortunately, Frederick hotel guests and apartment renters may suffer from bed bug infestations which can be any unpleasant experience. The bites themselves are itchy and painful, and the insects are notoriously difficult to eradicate. Furthermore, the psychological and physical effects of a bed bug infestation can be severe, not to mention costly. Guests may need to discard entire suitcases of valuable clothing in order to prevent transmitting bed bugs to other locations. Tenants could be forced to replace their mattresses and upholstered furniture. If you are suffering from a bite or infestation, contact the bed bug lawyers at Whitney LLP at (410) 583-8000 for an initial free consultation. There will be no out-of-pocket fees or expenses. .

Bed Bugs in Frederick Apartments

Maryland landlords are responsible for making sure that any apartments that they rent are free of infestation by insects from the moment your lease begins. They cannot rent out properties that are infested with bed bugs. Unfortunately, some landlords are not living up to their legal responsibilities. Bed bugs can infest any type of property, and they can pose a serious threat to health and safety anywhere they go. Infestations cause property damage, psychological harm, and injuries to tenants who are forced to deal with them.

If you discover an infestation in an apartment where you already live, your landlord has a responsibility to act promptly to remedy it. Bed bug extermination can be a complex process, and tenants may be forced to abandon their own property while this is happening. If a landlord fails to act quickly to exterminate a bed bug infestation, they can also be held responsible for this negligence.

Detecting Bed Bugs in Frederick Hotels

Bed bug infestations are not uncommon in hotels. Tourists and business travelers may unpack their suitcases only to find that they are covered in itchy bites and that their clothes are no longer safe to bring home. Bed bugs can infest any type of hotel, from a B&B or guesthouse to an exclusive property. Hotel owners are responsible to provide clean rooms that are free of insect infestation, and those who do not are violating their legal duties to their customers.

You may not be sure if you are seeing bed bugs in your Frederick hotel. There are telltale signs of bed bug infestations that you can detect. You may see red or black spots on the mattress or clustered near the seams of the bed. You may want to inspect the seams in any hotel room you enter to look out for signs of hidden bed bugs. Of course, you may also discover bed bugs by waking up in the morning with an itchy bite. These tiny bugs are nocturnal, so it can be more difficult to discover them during the day. They leave behind spots on an infested mattress, and you may even notice a musty odor in infested rooms.

What Should You Do If You Find Bed Bugs?

If you find bed bugs in your hotel or apartment, document the infestation immediately. Take photos and videos that show the insects, your bites and other damage that they have caused. If you can use a small, self-sealing plastic bag, take samples of the bugs with you. This task is unpleasant, but it can help to verify that you are a victim of a bed bug hotel infestation and to hold those responsible accountable. Report the infestation immediately to the hotel manager or your landlord and file a report with the Frederick County Health Department. Make sure that you get the medical treatment that you need for your bites and associated scarring.
