Bug Off: Tips for Preventing & Dealing with Bed Bugs

If you’ve ever been a victim of this unfortunate infestation, you know it’s both unpredictable and something you definitely want to avoid. No one wants to deal with this problem on your property, but it can happen to anyone. It has nothing to do with how clean you are or how well vetted your guests are, bed bugs are something many of us will come across at some point or another. Someone from our Business Mastery membership recently asked us how to handle this issue, so we’re sharing our tips for preventing this infestation and what to do if it happens to you.

It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Front Range A-Frame 😍

🚨 Public service announcement to all of you short-term rental hosts out there….Whitney, love your account! But one of the things we love the most is in Whitney’s instagram bio, she has, ‘not seeking collabs at the moment,’ and we respect that!

We bet Whitney was being bombarded (hosts..maybe you are too!) with potential collabs from influencers that would like to stay for free in exchange for photos or a shout out on their page. We respect that she is putting that there because we venture to guess that a lot of time and energy is going into maybe some not-so-fruitful collabs.

So hosts, we just want to take this time for a PSA to really vet those collaborations. They can be…ego-boosting…. in the beginning, but we just want to remind you, you’ve got to make sure that both of you are getting results there, and you need to have a clear definition of what you want that to result in for yourself. You also want to make sure it’s not during those busy times with a lot of revenue potential!

We just wanted to give her a shout out for putting that in there, because we’ve never seen that before! You’ve got to stand for something or fall for anything. But other than that, there’s so many other things about Whitney’s property.

She purchased this a-frame a few years ago and did a complete reno on it, and you can tell that she has really taken the time to put attention to detail! If you go through their feed, they have made the investment in some higher end furnishings into their cedar hot tub, and it looks like they are reaping the rewards from their reviews and finances by investing in their property from the get-go.

So Whitney, we are going to put you on our wish list! If anybody is heading to Colorado soon, make sure to reach out to them and book a stay!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!
