Found 1 report:

My family and I moved into a huge 5 bdrm house about 3 months ago. I have 3 children. All 3 started to get bites all over there bodies mostly their limbs. At first I thought it was mosquito bites, then an allergic reaction to sunscreen as we have just gone through summer. Two days ago I was trying to get my 3 year old to take a nap and noticed black spots all over the bunk bed above me. I was laying there, and then i looked into a hole from a drill spot for a screw and noticed it was so dark c

ompared to a similar hole a few inches away. Realizing that it looked like a bunch of bugs in there, I went to get my husband to take a look. The more we looked, the more we found. My worst nightmare was becoming my reality.
The bunk beds are Pine wood from Ikea and less than a year old. I consider us to be fairly clean people, changing the sheets no less then once a week but sometimes 2 times a week. I never considered having bed bugs as my children's bites became so bad that one of them couldn't sleep at night. She kept coming into our bed, and we kept putting her back. She had insomnia. One morning I woke up and my 5 year old commented on how blue my 1 year old baby looked, and she sleeps in the playpen in our room. She had little red spots all over and a slight welt around each red spot. I thought it was very unusual and took her to the emergency. Worried that the blue may have been from Cardiac arrest? They did some tests, no blood work though. Her heart was fine after an ECG test. The doctors figured because all the kids had it that it was just a virus. No one said anything about possible bed bug bites. I have never seen one single bed bug up until 2 days ago. I feel terribly guilty that I never noticed before this, that the bugs have been feasting on my kids. Our landlord said that the people who lived here before us were rather dirty. We figured it just needed some TLC. I can't sleep at night anymore, I'm obsessively checking for them at night to make sure they aren't around. We sprayed the bunk beds with Raid (the type that kills bedbugs) but it's very strong and you will need to air out. The children have moved into a spare room downstairs and haven't woke once at night since they've gone to bed. The house is 3 floors but I have only seen them in the bunk beds not even the foam mattresses in the kids room. The black spots are bed bug poops, so GROSS!
I'm not sure what we are going to do, for starters I'm calling our landlord today to figure something out.
