A Bed Bug Summit is Coming to Las Vegas (But It's a Good Thing)

No one likes to talk about Bed Bugs especially not us after we once received several photos of supposed bed bug bites from hotel guests. (We like hotel photos in our inboxes but definitely not this kind.) Yet there's an entire event happening in Vegas in September that will be all about bed bugs.

The third annual North American Bed Bug Summit is taking place from September 6-7 at the Red Rock Casino and Spa off the Strip in Summerlin. At the conference, the "BedBug University" will be in session giving hotel owners and maintenance teams an "educational blueprint" on effectively dealing with and preventing bed bugs. Twenty-three entomologists and bed bug experts will be giving talks while more than 75 vendors will be hawking the latest bed bug-related services and products.

Now, we have to wonder about how well this conference will be attended. If a hotel shows up, does that mean they have bed bugs? An attendee quandary indeed. On the flip side, if you plan on heading to Vegas September 6-7 and want to be sure your stay will be bed bug-free then definitely book a room at the Red Rock. Rates start at $200 a night.
