Read about this interesting article I found on bedbugregistry.com of why exterminators reports are evidence of nothing. http://www.bedbugregistry.com/blog/25/
I agree that a visual inspection of at most 2 minutes even by an expert pest control operator (PCO) means aboslutely nothing.
As this article explains, the PCO would have to dismantle furniture in order to conduct a thorough inspection.
Why not utilize a dog to do the inspection. A dog can scan a standard-sized hotel room in 3-5 minutes and uses its sense of smell to sniff out bed bugs in crevaces and bedhin head boards and power outlets and all of that without the need to dismantle anything.
