      Post editing time   31/08/18

      Hi folks, please note we have reduced the time you can edit a post to 30 minutes. The ability to edit a post is there for you to fix up things like typos and grammar before the Grammar Police descend on you or to clarify a point you where making that, on seeing it posted, you think could be worded better. Unfortunately, the length of the previous editing window has resulted in several posts being totally changed or deleted which can result in the resulting replies, and indeed the whole thread, being totally nonsensical (over and above the usual that is ) and shows disrespect to the BMs that participated in the discussion. If you wish to clarify a post you made after the window has elapsed, you can easily quote the relevant part of your post and do so. If it is a serious issue, as per current practice, report your post, giving a justification as to why the change is needed, and the mods will deal with it. Just because you made an arse of yourself in the post is not a valid justification. Remember, pause and think before posting re adherence to the rules, legality and the "Nice to be Nice" ethos.

      Nude or not nude, that is the question   01/05/18

      An inordinate amount of the Moderators Teams time is spent on ensuring inappropriate images are removed from the forums where necessary as per Rule 29. On investigating why people have posted nude images in a non-advanced area, the vast majority of the feedback we've had has been "I didn't realise where I was".  Therefore, we have added a visual indicator to help you quickly identify whether you are posting in the advanced or the non-advanced area. If you are in an advanced area you will notice the page background is now a pale green - green for go.                               If you do not see the green background it is your responsibility to double check where you are on the site prior to posting any images/videos. This is doubly important for those using Tapatalk due to the fact we have no control over the Tapatalk theme (i.e. Tapatalk users will not see this visual indicator). Offenders will be sanctioned.

Bugs in hotel rooms

Recommended Posts

elche

Just got back from a month long trip.  Like many hotels in Thailand, bugs can be a problem.  Most recently I've been staying at the Diamond City Place Hotel on Pattaya Thai, near third road.  I usually buy a can of bug spray and one spray of the corners of the room keeps the room free of bugs for my stay.  This time, however, I had problems with these little bugs.  I don't know if they were miniature ants or termites but almost everyday I had found more of them in the room.

I suspect previous visitors had a lot of food in the room and they were returning from other rooms through the ventilation system into my room.

Once they are in, so tuff to get rid of, especially if previous occupants have left food lying around.... Some places make you vacate your room for an afternoon weekly while they blast them away with strong repellent. The Queen Vic does, and its hygiene is excellent. Not that I would ever stay there again personally 

Give your room a really good going over with the killer spray, skirting boards, and especially the dark inside of the wardrobe etc,.

.... don't come back into room for a few hours mate, the spray isn't good for your lungs

One of the things I buy at 7-11 when I first arrive in Pattaya is a can of bug spray, because several hotels I've stayed at had ants in the rooms. Better to be prepared than wake up in middle of night with ants crawling all over you.

You mean bedbugs?

Change room, or better even change hotel.

No thank god I have never experienced bed bugs in any hotels throughout Thailand. I must have lucked out.

The bugs I refer to are ants, and they are a little different from the ones in my neck of the woods back home. The Pattaya hotel ants seem to be smaller and lighter shaded, and much quicker than their American counterparts. 

Off the top of my head I remember my room at the VT 6 condo and Privi Suites had ants, and Lido Beach hotel had a huge dead roach one time in the bathroom.

Yeah, definitely. In a town with hundreds (thousands?) of hotels, its best to move on to the next one. Even if your current hotel puts out enough spray to kill them all, those creepy crawlies will be back. 

Best to pick a place that has a preventative posture, rather than reactive.

Don't think I've ever spotted an ant in any hotel room yet. Prob cos I never eat in the room.

Plenty of mossies, tho. Impossible to keep those fuckers out.

I find the air conditioning usually keeps mozzies at bay.

I must be staying at the wrong places. I don't recall ever seeing any critters in the rooms I've stayed in while in Patts. Can't say that about the hotels I've stayed here in the US.
