I contacted the county health dept on Monday. The inspector was pretty sharp, said he'd contact the motel owners and go from there. He said they've had lots of complaints over the past two years as more international travellers started coming there behind the weak dollar. For me to get that many bites in a two night stay the place must be crawling with them.
I spent all last weekend douching the house, bags, clothes, etc. Disassembled the bed & sprayed the shit out of it. No sign of them in the house and no new bites so far. These bites are about 100 times worse than the worst flea bite you ever got. The little fuckers bite you three times, "breakfast, lunch, dinner" they call it. Whoever said they thought they had chickenpox nailed it, I was sure it was that or a staph infection. The "no-see-um" cedar gnats in western backcountry give me fits and there were some around due to the warm fall. Bullshit, this was a zillion time worse.
So, from now on I take even more "anti-bed bug" precautions in motels rooms and I may get the Pronto Plus stuff. Be sure to check the Bed Bug Registry and Trip Advisor online, too, for travelers reports. Don't think I'll be staying at the Super 8 again, that's for certain.
