A Vernon family discovered bed bugs in their North Vancouver hotel room, after they had slept there.

A Vernon couple's Vancouver vacation turned into a creepy crawly nightmare last week.

Kerrie and Callum Stewart drove all day on June 26 to North Vancouver, pulling into the North Vancouver Comfort Inn and Suites at about 9 p.m. They had travelled to the coast to visit their daughter, who was on a break from studying in Australia.

Kerrie picked up their daughter, and the three of them went straight to bed. Their daughter woke up itchy.

She realized this could be bed bugs, because she's had them before, and they just send you into a panic," Kerrie told CTV News.

Upon further inspection, their fears were confirmed.

"There was a lot of the black dot excrements and big bed bugs and eggs and it was horrifying," Kerrie said. "There were dozens and dozens of bed bugs that you could see, and you never usually see a bed bug."

Management at the hotel offered to upgrade their room, and not charge them for their first night.

The family asked the manager of the hotel for $1,000 to replace items that had become infested, but management refused. The hotel says they offered to have the family's clothes dry cleaned.

Kerrie took to social media, posting pictures and their story on her Facebook page. The post was shared over 16,000 times, and received over 2,000 comments.

The pictures show red sores all over the bodies of all three members of the family.

When CTV News contacted the hotel, management issued a statement sayingbed bug infestations are not completely preventable, but we want to express our sincere regret for the disappointment this family experienced during their stay with us."

One of the most important parts of a holiday is choosing our accomodations properly. After a day of fun filled leisure activities, we surely want to come back to a relaxing and comfortable bed.

Unfortunately for Wai Shean Chau, the exact opposite happened to her. Wai Shean had shared her rather unsavory experience, when her hotel room's whole ceiling fell down while she was on holiday recently.

According to her Facebook posting, she booked a three-room water chalet, but misfortune fell upon her when one of the room's ceiling suddenly collapsed.

In the pictures shared by Wai Shean, it appears that quite a big chunk of the ceiling had simply given way, and it created a flood in one of the rooms.

She even shared a video of the mess it left behind. Instead of a luxury room, it looked more like a construction site now.

And to make make matters worst, Wai Shean complained that he hotel's management were rather unfriendly although what happened was not within her control, and the replacement room had left much to be desired.

"The room was overall worn out. Woke up the next morning with red spots on face, hand and feet! I didn't think much of it but the spots swell up through the day and it got so itchy. Those were horrible bed bug bites! Im not sure if it was from the bed or the blanket," said Wai Shean shared her woes in her Facebook posting.

And this all happened at Avillion Port Dickson, a five star resort, which is simply unacceptable, as Wai Shen had openly named the hotel in question in her FB post.

Let's hope that Wai Shean recovers from her nightmarish holiday, and receives proper compensation from the hotel for her ruined holiday.

A warning during this busy travel season, it may not just be delays and bad weather that could spoil your vacation.

Exterminators say the bed bug problem is quick to spread this time of year.

Bed bugs had all but disappeared from the 1950s to the 1990s. But since then, bug experts, say the pests have made a huge resurgence, and Upstate exterminators say they are rampant in this area.

The blood sucking pests may only be a quarter of an inch, but in Spartanburg alone, theyve had the power to vacate apartments units and take down motels.

Fighting off bed bugs is serious work for Raksha Patel, owner of Royal Inn and Suites in Boiling Springs.

She has spent tens of thousands of dollars on mattress pads, mattresses, and cover springs to keep out unwanted guests. But it doesnt stop there.

And also weve changed the carpet, weve removed all the headboards in the rooms, and that protects from every bed bug situation we used to have before. We dont have an issue, but just to keep our customers happy weve done all this, says Patel.

Affordable Pest Control owner Israel Robinson, who has been an exterminator in the Carolinas for 30 years, has noticed that the times have changed. He says back when he started, parents who said, dont let the bed bugs bite were never concerned they actually would.

Its a growing problem, according to a North Carolina State entomologist, he stated that it has not peaked yet, because of the ability of them to adapt, Robinson says.

Robinson uses a combination of methods, but theres one treatment he says is the most effective.

Heat eradicates bed bugs, Robinson says.

He says that the bug dies at 120 degrees and the eggs die at 123 degrees.

To avoid bed bugs, anytime you visit a hotel, pull back the sheets and check the seams and corners of the mattress right near the pillow area. Youre looking for black spots, the bugs themselves, or yellowish skins that they shed.

Robinson also recommends checking headboards, alarm clocks and dressers near the bed.

To keep their facility clean, Royal Inn has monthly exterminations, and also sprays after each guests leaves.

And the motel even provides free laundry to new guests.

We tell them to wash their clothes before they would go in the motel room, so they dont bring in, Patel says.

A problem motels like Royal Inn and Suites deals with is that some clients will even falsely claim there are bed bugs to get a bill dismissed.

So if you do encounter any let a hotel know right away, dont wait until the morning after, and take pictures with your cell phone for evidence.

Cheryl spent a week at a beautiful resort and came back with a souvenir she didn't count on. She says, "Our vacation was wonderful, the villa spotlessly clean, the resort employees very friendly and helpful, the food was good overall and truly excellent in the specialty restaurants for dinner...Bed bugs would be my only complaint! Now I know what to look for BEFORE getting into bed no matter where I may travel!

"The photo shows some of the bed bug bites I received on my ankle while vacationing in a beautiful villa. At first we thought we were getting multiple bites from mosquitoes or sand fleas but once I started noticing that when I woke up, I had bites around my neckline, arms, wrists, and legs in patterns of mostly three (breakfast, lunch, and dinner...yuck!!) I realized what they were. The photo is what some of the bites looked like after 10 days or more.

"I am hoping that I didn't bring any bugs home with me!! I have taken initial steps to determine whether the problem has...MORE followed me home by having my daughter count the bites around my neckline to see if more show up. I also steamed, vacuumed, and sprayed rubbing alcohol all over my fairly new pillow top mattress and box springs; steamed, washed and dried all the bed linens using hot water and bleach; sprayed rubbing alcohol all over my baggage inside and out; and vacuumed my bedroom thoroughly.

Hopefully, I am just doing this as a precaution and there aren't any bugs that traveled home with me. I realize that if there are any bugs I will probably need professional help to deal with them and that I can probably kiss my mattress goodbye!"

This photo was given to ABC News 4. The provider said it shows furniture discarded by local firefighters as the result of a bed bug infestation.

According to firefighters, three Charleston County fire stations are infested with bed bugs. On Monday, a retired firefighter, Captain Joe Johnston spoke on behalf of others who won't speak up out of fear of retaliation.

Johnston said its been going on for a couple months and adds several firefighters have carried bed bugs from work to home. Now there's question if the situation is being handled properly.

He said he became alarmed when text messages and pictures started coming through. The pictures showed piles of infested office furniture outside Fire Stations 20, 13, and seven.

"It's a major problem, it's neglect is what it is, this is something you can manage very easily, Johnston said.

Its an issue the firefighters said was ignored by their interim fire chief.

"The crews are actually getting eaten alive, he said. They're taking it home and nobody is showing or expressing they care. Where do you go?"

For those at station seven, they go outside where there's working tents and showers. But with no signs of extermination, Johnston said it's only a matter of time before the pests follow. He said he and his family have been through a bed bug infestation before.

"If you haven't experienced it, you don't know what you're up against, Johnston said. "I know what they're up against, I know the politics of it, I know how it is. I want to be able to help them get the help they need and deserve."

In a statement Monday night, the Charleston Fire Department confirmed an infestation at three stations.

Once the problem was identified at Station 20 the firefighters were relocated to Station 18 while a professional contractor proceeded with the treatment, inspection, and cleaning of the station utilizing a chemical treatment process. Upon completion of the process, crews returned to the station, but still observed signs of infestation. Crews were again relocated as the professional contractor applied another treatment. Information was distributed to the department outlining recommended preventive measures to reduce the spread of the pests.

Bedbugs were reported at Station 13 and then Station 7 this past week. A specially trained K-9 that detects bedbugs was brought in to search the buildings and alerted on a few of the mattresses and sofas at both stations. The items were removed from the station for disposal at Station 7 and some of the items were removed from Station 13. Crew concerns halted further furniture removal at Station 13 until the affected living areas can be treated.

The crews from both stations were relocated to two air-conditioned Wester Shelters, temporary structures frequently used by urban search and rescue teams and wildland fire teams for crew operations. The tents have been erected outside of Station 13 along with a portable shower and toilet facility to reduce the impact on emergency services coverage in the area. The interior kitchen space was isolated from the impacted living spaces based on recommendations from a professional pest control manager and the bedbug K-9 handler to provide the crews with access to essential laundry facilities, stove and refrigeration.

During this period, the CFD has taken several steps to address the problem, including the hiring of a professional pest control company to treat Station 20, shifting mitigation strategy to heat treatment to address employee concerns, and issuing updates that reinforce best practices to reduce the likelihood of spread to other stations or firefighter's homes. In addition, Interim Chief John Tippett has directed all city fire stations be inspected by the specially trained K9 to ensure that they are free of bedbugs or identified rapidly for mitigation. One additional station (Fire Station 19) was inspected based on a concern, but found to be free of the problem. Additionally, the department is working with Charleston Housing Authority to obtain use of their heating units to apply to the affected stations. Due to the holiday weekend the department was unable to deploy the equipment through the housing authority and had to take measures with temporary housing in order to ensure we maintained protection of the residents in the area.

The statement also said no members have advised the Safety Officer of any reports of bed bugs beyond these stations or at their homes. Interim Fire Chief Tippett said they're committed to resolving the issue as quickly as possible.

Mattress Cleaning - Dust Mites Removal System - Keeping your home clean is definitely a task. When bed bugs invade your home, the task can become especially difficult, and can often result in furniture and other beloved items having to be thrown out to ensure that the pests do not return. Heavy steam cleaning is one of the very most effective ways to remove dust, dirt and scent out of your home. It can be an effective means for killing bed bugs also.

The very best and the simplest way of stopping a bed bug outbreak according to researchers and experts is to keep your comforter sets very clean and tidy. Seems very obvious doesn't it? But this is where the catch is. The majority of us think of cleaning and preserving our bed linen as a daily habit task tended to only one time we awaken and before we crash in. We do not add the value necessary in keeping bed linens truly "clean" and hygienic.

The MattressKleen system is your healthy solution as it is non and dried toxic. The MattressKleen Process uses world's best portable equipment that vibrates and pulsates the mattress allowing powerful vacuum extraction to eliminate dead skin, mites and their excrement which is what we respond to. Simultaneously, UVC lamps can kill pathogen, bacteria, mould spores and living microorganisms. The complete cleaning system provided by MattressKleen is the secure and efficient way of interacting with dust mites problems.
