    Thank you for posting about this. I am going on a trip next year and checked the motel on Bed Bug Registry and also picked up some other tips.

    We've relied on a couple of on-line sources: Bed Bug Registry and Bed Bug Reports. Obviously, bed bugs can appear in an instant and it's possible a place can be listed by someone who was lucky enough to miss a room with bedbugs. But we inspect anyway and have never had an issue with a place not listed on either registry.

    ETA sorry if this duplicates info up-thread.
