    Are you saying the paper said it was a problem at Disney or just in general? They are a huge pain if you happen to come across them. I had a family member who encountered them while on vacation in Mexico, they can really scieve(spelling??) you out.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    The only bug problem I know of at WDW is in the root system of that tree in the middle of AK, although I think Claire is doing a good job of "Spraying".

    They are gross. They live in rugs and baseboards by day and get in the matress frame work. Mobile at night. Snack time.

    Lice from hotel pillows is another dirty little secret. As much as possible, bring your own. Carry a pyrethricide, if you can and spray the beds (matresses not linens) and let it dry before you lay down on them. There is a 48 hours or 60 minutes investigation of major hotels and bedbugs, contaminated (bodily fluids) bedspreads, and "other" infestations are rampant as housekeeping does not have the time or resources to change and launder every pillos and spread, everytime. EWEW yuck.
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    Ugh! I hate the thought of this, but knowing it can happen will allow one to at least try to do preventative measures. We'll be in a hotel next week for a couple of days.

    If buy chace you ever get scabies, The absolute best remedy is by a company called All Stop from Erath Louisiana. Call the order line and they will talk you through it.We got scabies from 5 abandoned pups and didn't know what it was but it cleared and stopped in less than 2 weeks. Use product SPARINGLY as directed.

    There is a spray that you can take with you if you want but Heat kills them. Constantly changing bed linens takes care of this. Also steam cleaning carpets and wiping boards down helps also.

    Re: BEDBUGS at Disney Resorts

    A friend of mine stayed at Disney last year & ran into this just problem. They were not happy. He told me you could you the air can for helping when your in your room this is the stuff you use on your keyboard computer cleaning. I hope these bugs are gone by the time I go as some bugs that bite me I get hives wonder if I should let my travel agent know so they can let the resort know. Do you think it would help?

    Re: BEDBUGS at Disney Resorts

    OK lets take a deep breath here. WDW has a regular cycle of spraying for insects and rodents. I know 'cause I found a roach in my room one time.
    One in 21 straight years of WDW travel. As I moved to another room they were coming into spray the old one. While yes you could come in contact with a bed bug, the odds are sure with you that this worry at WDW is a not great threat. Icky subject.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Ewe.

    Lets see a couple of reports from 2007 until 2009. Odds are still in our favor or nobody including me has ever seen this site to report it on.
    Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

    And when I was a child, my Mom would put me to sleep and say sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite. I was happier when I didn't know what that meant. Ewe.
