Southern Nevada Health District Seals Bed Bug Infested Rooms.

 


 

The Southern Nevada Health District is on the case investigating reports of bed bugs at a local motel. Several guests complained to Eyewitness News that they were bitten by the bugs and some of them are covered in bites! Eyewitness News is following this exclusively from the Travel Inn motel at Fremont and Eastern.

Clark County Health District investigators spent most of Thursday on the scene collecting samples. What they've found is enough to make your skin crawl. Wearing protective gear from head to toe, health district investigators went room to room at the Travel Inn looking for evidence of what several guests have suspected all along -- bed bugs.

One motel guest said, "They come out at night, rolex replica feed on humans. They can feed for up to 10-15 minutes at a time."  Their bodies are visibly covered with itchy welts and scabs, Kylee Clark and her fiancé Sean Bosilavick contacted Eyewitness News after they say the manager of the Travel Inn refused to take action to either get rid of the bed bugs or move them to another room.  But after our first story aired Wednesday night at 11, Bosilavick says they were kicked out of the room they say they paid for two weeks in advance. "We were 86'ed off the property with our possessions still in side. We spent the night on the streets with no where to go."

Eyewitness News contacted the health district, which sent a crew to the motel to investigate first thing Thursday morning. Even before the health district confirmed the bed bug infestation, motel employees started removing the bedding, mattresses and box springs in all 60 rooms. The manager of the Travel Inn, who at first denied there was any kind of bug problem at the property, now says he intends to comply with any other stipulations made by the health district. Travel Inn manager "Alex" said, "If there is any other problems, I'll take care of it." The health district has sealed off several of the rooms.

A number of families with school-aged children live at the Travel Inn motel. As a precaution, the health district says it will alert the nurses at the nearby schools to make sure they are on the look out for bed bugs.
