I was bitten by bed bugs during my stay at the Residence Inn in Mishawaka. I was glad they weren't fleas, but let me explain. I woke up the first morning with a few bites on my legs. I really didn't know if they were fleas or bed bugs. Worried about BOTH I took all my clothes and put them back in my suitcase and placed it up high. We had a very hectic schedule and were gone most of the next day and only came back to sleep the second night. After leaving and talking to others I decided to call the manager to discuss the bed bug problem.
She was going to check the room. She called the next day and said she saw no evidence of the bed bugs when she looked at the bed linens. Either did I all night. Pulling up the sheets and looking. But in the morning I had a total of 21 bites on both legs. The linens were very nice, and white, although the mattress was too soft and lumpy. I asked her to promise me that she would throw that mattress out so no one would have to go through what I did. She did not. The only time I was not wearing socks and long pants (it was a cold September weekend) was when I was sleeping. So please tell me when I could have gotten bitten by anything else? My doctor said they had the characteristics of bed bug bites, and gave me lotion and anti-inflammatory to ease the pain and itching. (The ones on my feet hurt when I walked)
When I got home I left my suitcase in the garage and slowly brought in clothes to wash in very hot water. Even the clothes I didn't wear, I washed. It was NOT the way I wanted to spend an entire afternoon. It doesn't look like I brought any home, and it ended up not being fleas (I went to my doctor) so I'd rather have bed bug bites than a flea infestation.
