Tourists often stop in Waldorf while visiting the nation’s capital or exploring Cedarville State Forest. Around 27% of the households in Waldorf rent at one of the many apartment complexes in the community.

Unfortunately, bed bug bites can affect people at hotels and apartments here. Bed bug bites are itchy and painful, and the physical and psychological effects of an infestation can be overwhelming.

BED BUG INFESTATIONS IN APARTMENT COMPLEXES

Landlords in Bennsville, La Plata and Bryantown have a legal responsibility to ensure that the premises they rent are free of insects and infestations when you move in. However, some fail to live up to their obligations. Whether you’re renting an older space or a newer one, bed bugs can be a serious problem. Landlords that lease bed-bug infested apartments can cause injuries and emotional distress for the tenants who encounter them.

In addition, landlords also have a responsibility to exterminate insect infestation if one begins later in the lease. If they fail to do so promptly, they can also be held responsible.

BED BUG INFESTATIONS IN WALDORF HOTEL ROOMS

Many people expect that booking a high-end hotel in Waldorf, Bennsville, La Plata and Bryantown will protect them from insects, but this is not the case, as bed bugs can turn up in any establishment. Hotel owners are required by law to provide their guests with clean rooms that are free of insects. When they rent out infested rooms, they are violating the duties that they owe to their patrons and can be held accountable for the ensuing damages. Many hotel bed bug victims find themselves replacing suitcases or shortening their stays in order to prevent transferring the infestation to their homes. These losses come in addition to the anxiety and suffering that can result from experiencing bed bug bites.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE BED BUGS IN YOUR HOME OR APARTMENT

In many cases, you may not notice bed bug bites at first. Some people might spot the telltale signs of bed bugs on the mattress or wake up with itchy red bumps. However, others may experience a delayed reaction and discover days later that they have been bitten.

These are tiny insects, and even the adult ones measure only one-quarter of an inch. Juvenile bed bugs may measure in at less than a 10th of an inch. While bed bugs are brown, they might appear red or black if they have recently bitten someone. In most cases, bed bugs emerge at night. However, signs of them may be visible during the day as well. Bed bugs often produce a musty or sweet odor in a room, and small, dark stains may be found on mattresses that have been infested. Bed bugs often hide in the seams of mattresses or furniture, so checking these can help to alert you to their presence or verify the source of your bites.

Bed bug bites do not have one specific look that clearly differentiates them from bites by mosquitoes or fleas. In most cases, they occur on parts of the body that are left bare while sleeping and have a characteristic straight-line pattern that often includes three separate bites. Victims may experience red or pink puffy welts of differing sizes. If you think you have been bitten by bed bugs, you can often go back and look for the signs of an infestation to confirm it.

WHAT CAN VICTIMS OF BED BUGS BITES DO?

If you discover bed bugs, you should take photos of the evidence to document the existence of the insects. You may even be able to take bugs with you in a plastic bag. You should report the infestation to your hotel or landlord as well as the Charles County Department of Health. Get the medical treatment that you need for your bites and related scarring and damage, and contact the bed bug lawyers at Whitney LLP for a legal consultation.
