    went to a nice hotel in new mexico, checked underneath the mattress: a speck that exploded into a spot of blood when i touched it. right below it were two fecal spots. i hoped against hope it wasn't a bed bug, but then after looking at the headboard, i found one perched in between the brass decorative buttons. there was a cast skin not far below it. i immediately went to the front desk and was switched to a different room, which i also checked out (and it was fine).

    it's summer and everyone's traveling - always always check!!!

    Yeah its avoid where you can and that means always looking.

    I would say I run an average of one in 20 rooms having bedbugs and that's why I am traveling for work or social rather than going to work on the hotel / location in question.

    Its nice to know you dodged a bullet, safe travels.
