    I went to my friends house yesterday to jam and I was informed at the end of the jam that they believe they have bed bugs. They are waking up every morning (for the last week) with bites. I quickly picked up my stuff and left. Thanks for inviting me over! Grrr! Really annoyed now.

    I made sure to take everything off before going in my house and I jumped in the shower. Cleaned my guitar case and bag off with rubbing alcohol. Hope I didn't bring any hitchhikers home.... The kicker is they want to get together next week to jam.... NOT HAPPENING. They were clueless on how bad bed bugs can get.

    Anyone ever deal with bed bugs?

    I would spray the Tele with a bleach/water mix and burn everthing else.

    The only way to handle it for sure is to tent the house and bake them. High temp kills them. Almost nothing else works.

    Image google "bed bug bites" :eek:

    The classic pattern is three bites in a line: breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Bed Bug INFECTION from the net.

    Crap! I'm itching all over just reading that.

    Had a bout with scabies a few years back. There's a good time for you! Daughter brought them home from school or something.

    I got bed bugs the last time I was in India. I got it in my freaking scalp... I buzz my hair anyway, but it got up in my scalp, down my right arm, and all over my right knee.

    I had to buy cotton balls and rubbing alcohol and basically take a bath in alcohol. It was bad.

    And in case you’re wondering what they look like... Google Ads has already picked up on this thread.

    I prefer my alcohol to stay in me, not on me.

    Our local State Department of resources had a great story. We foresters will bring in a bug for identification because of certain tree diseases, by their expert. So, one day someone brought in a bug from their house ... yup, bed bug from their travels on the east coast.:lol:

    Haven’t dealt with them, but my wife is obsessed with avoiding them, to the point where we think twice about going on trips where we have to stay at hotels. She was looking online for luggage protectors that are sort of like garment bags, which she said we can buy, put all of our stuff in, zip them up and keep in the bathtub if we stay at a hotel.

    I don’t blame you for not going back there.

    Actually, if he knew or suspected he had
    Them before you were over there, it’s pretty damn rude that he didn’t mention it beforehand.
