    every time i go to a hotel i come bitten all over and my dermatologist told me it was from picking because i was nervous. the heck with that . i called security because it felt like a spider bite and it was sweeling and it got bigger and redder and it must of got bit a few days before because it got all festered up and swollen and it started backing out. I sanitized it with some some alcohal and with tweezers this but started backing out and fulids came out and this big piece of it came out with my skin attached. the security guard saw it & then we found a hole in the other side of this matteress. we came back this time and i called up the my doctor and see her tomorrow. we are getting a motor home. I can feel them in my head right now and if i spry some alhocal on the sores the shells or bits and pieces will come out. who wants to go to bed.

    I was replacing a light bulb in a lamp on an end table and discovered a half a dozen of them on the shade and on the table. the interesting thing is this is our second home and other than me has not been occupied for four years by wife and out dogs. The location is an upstairs unused bedroom. The master bedroom where I sleep, I have never noticed anything, and I did a search after the finding. My questions: are how did they get into that room and why? Can they survive for 3 years with no food. they were all the 1/4″ adult variety. The Brown dog tick and the adult bed bug look alike to the untrained expert, like myself. The room is in partial shade even during daylight so not real bright in there. They were alive but not moving much unless provoked. I was at a loss what to do? Throwing away the lamp, night stand did cross my mind and so I decided to not take any chances and bag them up in the room and toss them, spray thoroughly and call an exterminator. Bed Bugs sound like a NIGHTMARE; I hope it is the brown dog tick or if bed bugs, I can get rid of them before it becomes a huge problem. Any thoughts?

  11. Nick & Trish says:

    My fiance and I stayed in a motel for a week and contracted bed bugs there. We moved to another motel (we are homeless) and realized after a few days that they had hitched a ride with us. We are now back at our campsite where we have lived for about 14 months and are still getting bit, even though we live in a tent! I just smashed the largest one I’ve seen yet to date. I pulled up our padding (the pillowtop of a mistress we sleep on) and there it was, just hanging out. I am so fed up! They’re nearly impossible to get rid of.
