We had just finished an exhausting two days at Holiday World and were on our way home. We drove until we couldn't go any further and happened upon the Super 8 exit. We just wanted to put our 3 kids in a bed and get some much needed sleep ourselves. We collapsed into the beds.
Upon waking, the nightmare began. I noticed some blood stains on the sheets, and upon examination, I saw little creatures walking around the sheets. I also found a dead bug, surrounded by several blood spots. My immediate thougth was BEDBUGS, so I went online and confirmed the identification. These were NOT fleas or carpet beetles, but Blood-sucking BEDBUGS. They were about 4-5mm in length and transparent -- except those that were blood red. My 4 year-old daughter had several linear bites on her arm (classic pattern).
I should have taken pictures, but I just wanted to get out of there ASAP. Although I'm to Entomologist, I knew what I saw was bedbugs. We packed up quickly and got out of there. I told the front desk of my experience, and they comped the room -- not even flinching. They mumbled something about "Oh -- wow -- we'll have to look at that. What room was that?" but I could tell they were well aware. Since DDT is banned, I have not idea how they're going to rid the building of these pests.
We have taken steps to make sure our clothes and luggage were cleaned of the pests before entering our house, but I can't be sure we haven't transfered some. What a nightmare!
