Choice Hotels Designates Delta Five as Qualified Vendor


RALEIGH, N.C.—Delta Five Systems, LLC, a supplier of innovative solutions to stop bed bugs using computer vision, biological science, and cloud technology, has been selected for the Qualified Vendor Program of Choice Hotels International, Inc. The agreement supports Choice-branded properties’ access to the Delta Five Automated Bed Bug Detection System, helping Choice franchisees to safeguard their guests’ experience, protect the reputations of their hotels, and receive significant cost savings over traditional pest management methods.

One of the world’s largest hotel companies, Choice Hotels franchises approximately 7,000 hotels representing more than 570,000 rooms worldwide across a myriad of brands, including the Ascend Hotel Collection, Cambria Hotels, Comfort, Sleep Inn, Quality, Clarion, MainStay Suites, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, Econo Lodge, and Rodeway Inn.

“Our revolutionary technology for bed bug prevention will enable Choice franchisees to avoid problems,” said Delta Five Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Al Safarikas. “Bed bugs are usually brought in by guests—one or two at a time. The solution is early detection. By installing the Delta Five Automated Bed Bug Detection System, hotel managers can find a bed bug before the bed bug finds another guest and prevent infestations before they can start.”

24/7 Monitoring of Guestrooms

According to Delta Five, its system can find a single bed bug before guests, hotel staff, pest management providers or canines. Unlike reactive and expensive heat-treatments or spraying, the Delta Five electronic lure delivers proactive 24/7 monitoring of guestrooms to attract and trap the bugs. A notification is instantly sent over WiFi to hotel staff via text or email. The cloud-based system retains capture data and enables hoteliers to track trends and forecast potential issues.

With the timely detection, notification, inspection, and elimination of bed bugs the way they come in—one or two at a time— the Delta Five Automated Bed Bug Detection System can help prevent infestations rather than only treating them after they occur, thus helping to avoid the need for expensive heat treatments, toxic chemicals, and high-cost remediations.

Through its Qualified Vendor Program, Choice franchisees have the option to take advantage of a negotiated brand discount for the Delta Five Automated Bed Bug Detection System, simplifying the purchasing process at the hotel level.
