Hagerstown is located in Washington County and is home to more than 40,000 residents. It is nearby Robinwood, Mt. Aetna and Chewsville. A center of travel and commerce, with major railroads, a regional airport and close access to Interstates 81 and 70, it welcomes tourists who are visiting attractions like the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts and Discovery Station. Around 60% of its residents are renters.
While Hagerstown is a great place to live and visit, it is not free from bed bug infestations in its apartments and hotels. Bed bug bites are itchy and often painful, and they can lead to serious allergic reactions, skin infections and persistent scarring.

Bed Bug Infestations in Hagerstown Apartments
Maryland landlords are required under state law to provide their tenants with clean apartments that are free of bed bugs and other noxious infestations at the time the lease is signed and throughout its term. This means that they must take prompt action to exterminate any bed bug infestation that comes to their attention. For Hagerstown tenants, the costs of a bed bug bite can escalate rapidly. Not only will they face medical expenses for immediate treatment, but they could be forced to get rid of mattresses, sofas and other expensive furniture to eradicate these insects.
Unfortunately, some landlords fail to abide by their duties under the law. They rent out infested apartments and then use cheap and ineffective solutions rather than hiring a professional exterminator. As a result, property damages and medical bills can grow even more. However, these landlords can be held financially responsible for their negligence. The bed bug attorneys at Whitney LLP have secured significant compensation in Maryland bed bug bite claims.
Hagerstown Hotels and Bed Bugs
Apartments are not the only places in Hagerstown, Robinwood, Mt. Aetna and Chewsville that
can face a bed bug infestation. Hotel guests can face an unpleasant surprise when they wake
up covered in red, itchy bed bug bites. Bed bugs can infest a roadside motel or a five-star
luxury property. Hotel owners are also required under state law to rent out only rooms that
are free and clear of infestations. However, some of them fail to do their jobs, and the costs to
tourists and business visitors can be substantial. Some victims will need medical treatment
right away, and in many cases, travelers will be forced to abandon costly luggage and all of
their clothing due to the risk of bringing the bed bug infestation back home with them. Like
landlords, hotel owners can be held financially responsible for the damages caused by their
negligence in allowing bed bug infestations to persist on their properties.
How to Find Bed Bugs In Your
Hagerstown Hotel or Apartment
It can be difficult to spot bed bugs during the day. That is why many victims only find the
infestation when they wake up with the bites all over their bodies. However, there are a few
signs that your Hagerstown hotel or apartment is infested with bed bugs. If you see small red
or black dots on the bedding, this is a telltale sign of bed bugs. While these insects are
nocturnal, they often cluster near mattress seams during the day. You can find them by
pulling back the sheets or even sofa cushions. These are small insects that are red or black.
If you find bed bugs in your Hagerstown hotel or apartment, you should take photos or videos
of the evidence. You could even preserve a bug in a plastic bag as proof of the infestation. You
should report the presence of the insects immediately to your landlord or hotel owner as well
as the Washington County Health Department. Make sure to get the treatment that you need,
and then contact a bed bug bite claims attorney at Whitney LLP.
