Bed Bug Alert: Moab Super 8!

Stayed at the Moab Super 8 last weekend and came away with over 100 bed bug bites, confirmed by my doctor this AM. Found numerous complaints about this in web hotel reviews, going back months. Stay away from that place until they clean it up. Days Inn is supposed to be bad too.

From alerts I read today on the web Moab hotels & motels have a bed bug outbreak going on right now. Trust me, you DO NOT want bed bug bites!!!!

And here I thought "bed bugs" were just a saying when putting kids to bed...

Yeah, I've been cleaning this place for two days. No sign of them yet, but if you see one you've probably got a thousand, or so I've read. I never put anything on a bed in a hotel room, but at that place I absentmindedly put my camera stuff & briefcase on a sofa. If they're in the bed they're in the sofa I figure, so I blasted everything with Lysol & have my fingers crossed. Calling the board of health and my lawyer first thing Monday. This is utter negligence on their part, heaven knows how long that place has been infested like that.

Nasty. Making me itch. Google search reveals that they are hard to get rid of and seemingly in epidemic proportions across the US in apts, nursing homes, and even nice hotels....

Dude bed bugs suck. I got about 50 bites one time on my legs staying at an hotel in Rockypoint. They're literally 10X itchier than mosquito bites...It made me feel like I had chickenpox.

An easy way to get rid of them is to bring the room temperature up to 120F.
It kills all the bugs, and their eggs.

Another way is to pile up the infested furniture, cover it, and pump in 120F air under the cover.

Either way, there is no direct application of chemicals involved, and is a lot more effective.

That place was gross when we stayed there in July 2008. All kinds of critters. We called it the Super 8 legged freak motel after that. Strange dude at the front desk also.

Yup. My wife is a ER nurse at the local trauma hospital. The stories she is bringing home about this makes my skin crawl...

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.

Yep, I went through everything in my hotel room in Moab this year. Hardly slept the first night worrying about getting attacked by the little fuckers.

If the EPA would have kept their two cents out of it we could still use chemicals with the good stuff in it to take care of this problem.

For bed bugs you can use herbal treatment.... spraying lavender, thyme, tea tree, or eucalyptus on bed linens, clothes and in other locations where people sleep in the house...and also can use eucalyptus oil...for more read... http://www.whatdobedbugslooklike.net...-pictures.html

I believe DDT was used to kill the fuckers on contact. Then we found out DDT kills practically everything.
