Bedbugs Infect Stone Oak

Bedbugs Infect Stone Oak

It will make your skin crawl. 

Imagine tucking your children into bed in a hotel and then realizing the room was infested with bedbugs! This scenario is exactly what happened to visitor Kali Powell, who found last week, to her horror, that her room at the Drury Inn and Suites in Stone Oak was covered with the critters.

Powell reported the incident to hotel management and called News 4. 
“It was the most nasty thing,” said Powell. “They were big, they were little. There was blood on the sheets.” (where the bugs were crushed)

A spokesperson from Drury Hotels provided the below statement regarding the incident.
The safety and comfort of our guests is our top priority,” said the Drury Spokesperson. “No hotel can prevent bed bugs from being introduced, but we are extremely vigilant and take proactive steps to check on a daily basis and treat any issues as soon as they are discovered. We are currently treating one room in our hotel. Surrounding rooms and areas have been thoroughly inspected and no evidence of bed bugs has been detected. Upon finding out about the incident we immediately moved the guest to another room and did not charge for the stay. We are sorry for the inconvenience this caused our guest.
Chance Tawater from Truly Nolen Pest Control told News 4 their company is all too familiar with bed bug calls.
"It doesn't matter what part of town it is, how new, or how old,” said Tawater. He said bed bugs are impossible for hotels, and even homes, to avoid.  He cautioned to check children’s belongings after play dates, as they can easily transport bed bugs from home to home.

"I feel traumatized,” Powell told News 4. “My kids feel traumatized, and my mom does too. "
