Freaked Out on 11/14/2013
My phone rang early in the morning, abruptly waking me up. As I went to answer my cell on the bedside table and turn on the light I saw something scurry on my pillow. I jumped out of bed in a panic. Got the nerve to go back and take a closer look. It was a bed bug. Wrapped it in tissue and ziplock. Couldn't go back to sleep so I started looking for more of them . Didn't find anything in the bed but saw something crawling on the curtain.... Another bed bug. I hurriedly showered and pa
cked up my things as I was checking out they day anyway. Called the front desk and told them what happened. They sent up security and an EMT (in case I had been bitten)
They searched the room (sort of). I filled our a statement of what happened and verified that I didn't think I had been bitten.
They said a team would be back to thoroughly search room and fumigate. They offered to fumigate my suitcase and belongings.
This was in room #521. They did say there was another incident the previous month but it turned our to not be bed bugs. Not sure if I believe that. This was a fully mature bed bug (about 1/4"). Not sure if room was comped as I was there on business in a block of rooms paid by the company.
