My news station did a report last night on Bed Bugs

Here is a website to check if a hotel had any reports.

Please be careful and do not use Diatomaceous earth. This can be very harmful to humans. 20 mule borax found in the laundry section is a much better choice. You put it on your carpet, sweep into cracks etc and leave over night the vaccume up. Also kills fleas and roaches. I once brought back palmetto bugs from florida which basically are very large roaches. It took me about a month to kill all of them. I still as a habit do a twice a once a month bug cleaning and sprinkle this all over my house and leave over night. I have pets that go out doors so you never know. I have not even seen a spider or any ant or any other bug in my house for a long, long time. An exterminator told me about this he also told me that most exterminators do not want you to know this because they want you to keep paying their bills month after month.......pretty sad.

If you currently have them on you do this:

Bath mixture of 1 cup Borax, 2 cups Epsom salt, 1/2 cup baking soda, 10 drops of Sea Buckthorn oil. This will rid your body of any mite problem. You can wash clothing/bedding with this mixture also. Use Borax in a powdered sugar/flour shaker on carpeting and mattress, leave for a day or two than vac. This is a very effective treatment for mites, fleas, bed bugs. The borax actully dries out the extoskelaton of the pest and they dehydrate and die. ou have to keep up with the baths for 7-10 days, depending on the type of mite. Don't wipe or shower after the baths, let the water dry on your skin. This leaves a residue on the skin that will continue to kill the mites as they try to move arround. I use this powder mixture in a scrub with some Dr. Booner's soap(Avialable at Trader Joe's $2.50@bar)You can also mix the powder in water and use as a cleaner on floors and furniture. It leaves a white residue, but that will keep the pests away.

I always take my pillows and blankets and I guess we have always just been lucky, as you can see we have stayed many nights at WDW hotels, and are going again next month....let's hope the luck tags along with us again

ive been reading this post for hours. I have stayed at Baylake towers and never even thought about bed bugs. Now as I lay here I am feeling itchy just reading this. OP glad those bed bugs are gone. I read over in the forums people have been feeling hopeless and ready to die over this. Im going to Old Key west and looked on Bedbuggerregistry and found Old Key west had a incident. I will be carrying something with me to spray. This tips are very useful so thanks for sharing this thread with us

MinnieJ - it does make you feel hopeless....and makes you go crazy! I can't tell you how many times I think I "feel" something crawling on my skin. I freak at every bug I see, every blemish on our skin. While we have been assured they are gone from our home it is going to take me a LONG time to get back to normal. Actually, I think normal for us will be different from what it used to be. My husband just got back from being out of town and I think I almost drove him nuts! Met him at the door with a change of clothes and nothing from his suitcase was allowed in the house except to go straight to the laundry. The night he came home I saw a bite on his arm and freaked! He had to convince me to calm down as it was simply a mosquito bite he had gotten while sitting outside the night before. Like I said - going to be a very long time before I can put this in the back of my mind.

I'm really nervous about our upcoming trip. We are staying off site for a week and then on property for a few nights. I just have to relax and hope that we won't be unlucky twice in one year. While almost every hotel/resort has had an incident of bed bugs I think it is safe to say that odds are you won't encounter them on your trip. Well, at least that is what I'm telling myself!

I keep on following your thread from time to time. You really need to give
your family and yourself a break. I know this experience is awful..we had
bed bugs when I was a kid. Just remember a bed bug bite is not deadly.

So, taking the necessary precautions on your next trip should be reassuring
enough to you. After all, you're going again so that means you enjoy it to
some extent. I routinely check the beds wherever I stay and can say, I've found alot of beds to be free of these bugs. So far, so good at my house. We're going again in October. However, it good to take heed and be careful. But try to avoid passing your fear onto your children. Enjoy your vacation and have a happy time with your family.

I've been catching up on this thread. Got some good tips that i wrote in my trip notes. I heard a tip about bringing a lint roller with you to roll under mattresses, between mattresses and box springs, under box springs, and around headboard. Walmart sells a small lint roller in their travel section.

I was discussing this thread with my mom and mentioned all your suggestions. She suggested putting your shoes in bags and freezing them for several days after arriving home from trip.Sounds like a good idea to me.
