On December 9th 2023 I booked a room at Red roof inn in Willis Texas. First I got room number 111 the room had a weird smell so we asked to get a new one. We got changed to 119. My daughter layed down for a while and watched TV. She fell asleep. She woke up a while later saying her neck was burning and arms. I checked them and they had rashes. Something told me to check the beds and when I did I saw a ton of bed bugs in the cracks of the beds. They were everywhere

Bed Bug Infestation in retirement studio apt.

Reported by Frank buzerak, presently living in petersburgh, ny tel # 423 271 4546
  • Incident Venue: Home or Apartment
  • Location: Wilmington, DE

I signed a lease and took residence in 7/8/23. Place appeared clean. Apartment 509 was mine in a 14 story bldg, I have very few articles as I lost my home to Hurricane Ivan 9/27/22 and been trying to find a home since then, my most expensive possession was a Lazy Boy ($3400) recliner that I bought to sleep in as I moved to a number of temp.locations. I was fine in the apartment for about 14 days, Two days after taking residence I purchased a Sleep Number bed ($4500), It took about 10 days for delivery, Two nights I was able to sleep in it and was then bitten 100’s of times, at that point the recliner was also infested.

I did not sleep at all for 3 nights and immediately reported the problem to the front desk. Was told I “just missed the twice a week spraying of other infested apartments and got on the scheduled the 4th night I went to a Holiday Inn Express to sleep which extended for 4 weeks (+$4000) because 2 sprayings and 1 heat treatment failed to rid the place of Bed Bugs.

I did return after the final heat treatment. I went in with 2 cleaning people. They were about to show me how they check for the bugs, They were going to lift the corner of the bed mattress to look but pointed out 2 live Bed Bugs scurrying across the top sheet, We all left the room. In the hallway they looked me over and picked two other live bugs off my clothes, I went back to the hotel and extended my stay. I gave the 30 requirement form that I was leaving in 30 days. I’ve hired a closed back truck to get all items treated and had my car fumigated while staying at another hotel in north NJ, I an now spending money to get multiple fumigation’s done on positions with the possibility of needing to discard everything if treatments don’t work. To add to my anxiety before I returned to see how the heat worked and I could again stay I was told a woman named Tina who directed those that did the fumigation and heat treatment that was done, She declared my room had no Bed Bugs.

That was the day before the cleaning people found live bugs on top of the bed and on me. I went to my doctor about the severe itching I was experiencing. He gave me a prescription for a heavier tube of the anti-itch product I’d been using for the original bites. It was expensive and what I was using was OK, just slower working. I am completely frustrated and would like to file a Lawsuit to cover all my losses from trying to live in a Bed Bug infested building and room. I’ve learned that most everyone living there is having Bed Bug issues of varying degrees.

This is ongoing issue for me due to debt I’ve incurred and needing to leave important sleeping items locked in storage to determiner they are free of bed bugs or must be discarded. I will need an Attorney to guide me along and assist me with trying to recover my losses, more to come.

  • Location: Butler,Pa Eastwood village Apartments Bldg1 apt 208

I have an incident where I discovered bed bugs a couple days after my annual inspection my voucher program, now there are also new tenets that moved in next door not even a couple months back as well. After sum time I decided it wasn’t anything serious so I continued to just stay there mind you I’ve been in the apartment the past 3 years and haven’t had no issues with bed bugs.

I don’t know whom or what brought them in there. But I want to point out after letting the landlord aware of the situation mind you there new owners of the property, they wanted to spray., but just using regular store bought spray. I did try to fogger myself thinking nothing of it and still they bugs kept showing up.

I am now in a new room. In a different bldg. I had to leave all my belongings. And I am so disappointed in what they’re doing to handle the situation.

  • Location: Pekin illinois

I’m the caretaker of a 69 year old handicapped man who had bought a bed from mattress liquidators located at3536 w court st in pekin. That day another helper was making his bed for him after it was delivered and noticed a few bugs. I thought they were fleas from the cat. Well about a week or two later he had said he was getting bit in bed. Ok we treated it and nothing else.

Well in June he started getting bit again. Did same thing and nothing again. In September he was saying he was getting bit more in bed. Well I called terminex to come check it out. I couldn’t believe what they showed me.The bed base itself was so infested it was disgusting.

Well I did a few things they said to do but it was so bad nothing was working so they came back to start treatment. The gentleman who’s bed it is has been sleeping in his chair since the beginning of October because of it. He can’t go in his room still for another month. That’s how severe the infestation was in that bed base he bought.$1500 he paid for bed on top of $3000 to get rid of the bugs that came with the Bed. That store refused to refund him and refused to come pick the bed up. Please help

Bites first night in new apartment

Reported by Edward silva
  • Incident Venue: Home or Apartment
  • Location: Carlisle PA

I moved into a new apartment on July 1st and was bit dozens of times the first night. At first the landlord tried to say I brought them in yet there are no bugs at my old apartment. They had an exterminator come spray once so far yet I am still getting bit every night I sleep there. I’ve spent maybe 4-5 days this month there and get bit without fail. I have a text message from her admitting to not cleaning the unit before to “save on costs”.

The landlord only offered me a 1 week off of rent, roughly $200. This barely covers what I spent on laundry and bug bombs, not to mention all my possessions are tainted. Everything I own is in that apartment and I will not feel safe bringing that stuff to my next home.

Dealing with bed bugs and cockroaches

Reported by Trina mcgarragle
  • Incident Venue: Home or Apartment
  • Location: 839 Talwood drive apt 410

We have been living at this apartment for 1 year and ever since we moved in last july we have been dealing with bed bugs and cockroaches. The landlord has been told about it by both of us but puts the blame on us like we brought them here which is not true as we never had them when we moved here. It took us 6 to 8 months to get them to fix faulty electrical plugs in our kitchen and living room as well as ti replace a broken fan in the bathroom and to replace the stove fan as well.

When we gave his wife the 1 & last months rent she said everything would be fixed before we moved in but that was a lie. We had to contact the owners of macpherson realty to tell them and the landlord told us not to say anything to head office as they will get to it but we werent a priority as they has 800 other units to take care of first. They have been nothing but unapproachable and rude to us since we moved in and had to call the head office many times and got no where so it’s been another 6 months and we are frustrated with this situation as I have lost jobs due to bed bug bites on my hands as I work in the food industry and that’s not accepted as cleanly.

I just wish they didnt blame us for the bed bugs as they are coming from the walla and the big hole under our bathroom and kitchen sinks doesn’t help either and they know about the problems in our unit but don’t want to help us fix anything. Just very stressed and frustrated over this if you need anymore information please don’t hesitate to contact me thank you

No notice given by Park Mgt-55 plus community infestations of bed bugs.

Reported by Pj
  • Incident Venue: Other
  • Location: Mobile Home Park Pasco County, FL

Informed by concerning community member who called Pasco Health Dept. Both, daughter & I suffer from compromised immune systems and they were concerned for our health & safety.
Management & homeower need to be held accountable or fined, this has to be a health & safety violation.
Knownly lying or deceitful practice, putting my family, home, health of others at risk of exposure, mind you it’s a 55 Plus community.

House members of infested home come into carport and upon my property with animals daily, my home is less then 30 feet from such neighbor confirmed to be major infestation.

Management keeping hush as tenants don’t have money to treat infestation by professional company. Homeowner trying DIY methods, leaving furniture & mattress in carport (bugs crawl). Tenants have muliple dogs, cats that travel throughout park onto others property lots, exposing them and their pets to these bugs throughout the community even clubhouse.

Couldn’t find any laws in Florida that would hold management responsibility to inform community of infestation and protect others, advise to take precautions nothing but crickets or states oh not aware (lying).
Health dept aware and at least 20 out of 168 homeowners became suspicious, inquiring about bed mattress and furniture outside.
The homeowner told me spring cleaning just rearranging a few rooms it’s easier to paint/clean.
BOTH homeowner & management aware. I have Lupus and need to control my environment. Limit exposure to chemicals usage/fumes, unhealthy people, pets and their fecal matter including bug’s that carry diseases.

Need help, locating all code violations to give written notice to park owner of management negligence, failure to inform residents of health & safety concerns in community.
We own our homes, rent property lots, and no HOA. Putting our investment property and health & safety at risk. Can you help?

Bodily Harm from Bedbugs!

Reported by Gina
  • Incident Venue: Hotel or Motel
  • Location: Wyndham Southbury CT

Case #05691866 with Wyndham corporate office. Reported 3/35/23 to Bruce & Diane.
I woke up mauled by bed bug bites on my arm & face, 3/25/23, Room 170, after staying in this room for 11 nights.
The same day, I reported my bites and showed them to the front desk at Wyndham Southbury.
I was told the exterminator would be coming for an investigation.
We were comped 2 days by the manager Joe, and our room was moved 4 doors down, Room 178.
Once we settled and rested AND paid for another night, we opened the curtains in the new room and found bed bugs crawling all over the window ledge.
We took videos and pictures, and showed them to the front desk. The manager was not working at the time, so an employee moved our room again, this time to the other end of the hotel, Room 108.
We inspected the entire room prior to moving our belongings inside.
We paid a total of over $1800 for a 2 week stay at the Wyndham Southbury.
The exterminator did not come for an investigation until a week after the incident. I was told they did not find bed bugs, which was expected for them to say to cover the incident.
Corporate has not reached out or refunded my money, therefore I need further, immediate action taken against them.
My skin is not scarred for life because of the neglect of a hotel. This is unacceptable.

  • Incident Venue: Hotel or Motel
  • Location: Lewes, DE

I am a senior lady, 67 yo who is staying at the Red Mill Inn in Lewes, DE. I had to go to Beebe Walkin Center on Saturday due to bed bug bites all over my body. I have the doctor’s report and I took a video of the bites. I am on medication and a topical cream right now. I reported it to the agent on duty. He has not done anything and seems to just forget about it. I have nowhere else to go as I am temporarily displaced due to losing my apartment in Florida due to unemployment and rising rents. CRC, Community Resource Center, in Rehoboth Beach, DE placed me in this motel during my transitional period.

Bed bugs in two rooms

Reported by Nellie

  • Location: Hyatt in Fort Meyers

On Feb 12th, I checked into the Hyatt for a 3-night stay. Unfortunately, during this stay, I discovered that my room was infested with bed bugs.

I reported that I had noticed multiple bites on my skin and had been experiencing itching and discomfort. The hotel staff promptly changed my room to yet ANOTHER room that was infested with bed bugs.

Despite the swift action taken by the hotel, I still experienced ongoing issues with bed bugs during my stay. I reported that I found additional bed bugs in the new room and continued to suffer from bites and discomfort.

I cannot believe what a horrible experience that was and it completely ruined my vacation!

My ex friend gave me bedbugs without informing me

Reported by Breona
  • Incident Venue: Home or Apartment
  • Location: bourbon

I let one of my ex-friends come over to stay the night for a week. I got bit the week she was staying over and I asked her to leave when I got bit. She did not say anything to me before she came over that she had bedbugs.

She came over with 4 bags and sat them by my couch. She has 2 kids and her house is nasty because she doesn’t clean it. I have 2 kids myself and they have been bitten up. She has not been back since I have told her to leave. I had to get rid of the couch, a bed ,all my blankets and sheets. I have bombed twice already and they are still not gone.

Me and my kids are being bitten up still. She has not been at my my house for 7 months and they are still not gone. I do want to inform you that I am not doing this because we are not friends anymore I am doing this because I have a family to think about and me and my kids are allergic to bed bugs. I am trying to move out of the place I am at right now and I don’t want the next resident to move in and have them.

Bed bugs at great wolf lodge

Reported by Sheryl
  • Incident Venue: Hotel or Motel
  • Location: Great Wolf Lodge

I went to the great wolf lodge for a vacation with my family. We got bed bugs THE FIRST NIGHT. Cmon… I have to say we were still able to enjoy ourselves but it was definitely a damper on the whole trip. My eldest daughter had 5 bites on her back and 3 to 4 bites on her legs. I’m sad to say that she was sort of suffering the whole trip.

PSA – Make sure to check resorts/hotels whatever for bed bugs before you stay the night. VERY IMPORTANT!!

Bitten By Bed bugs at NY Hotel

Reported by Ian
  • Incident Venue: Hotel or Motel
  • Location: New York City

I experienced bed bugs in a major Marriott hotel property in New York City. I was basically an unassuming tenant who could not have known what fate had in store for me.

While sleeping peacefully, I awoke with itchy red bumps covering my body. After scratching and rubbing at the bumps, I realized what had happened – as there were bed bugs all over me. I then immediately contacted hotel management to report what happened.

I have to say the hotel did take quick action and gave me a refund for the experience. Overall I had like 20-ish bites on my body, mostly concentrated on my arms, back and legs. I left the hotel shortly thereafter and visited a doctor for treatment. Overall it was a horrendous experience that I wouldn’t want anyone to go through.

I highly recommend anyone who suspects an infestation of bed bugs they should contact the hotel management immediately – as these kinds of pests can be hard to deal with and the longer you wait, the worse it could get.
