MILWAUKEE -- A family celebrating a birthday in the Wisconsin Dells ended up with bed bug bites for souvenirs.
When Aisha Carr and the group of young girls checked into the resort they had big expectations. They wanted to have some fun, but they also wanted some clean comforters and not to be eaten alive by bedbugs.
Carr says after going there for the past 12 years that may have been her last trip.
"Just all around a bad experience," she said. "It's no excuse for it, it's a zero tolerance."
The employee at the resort added that a professional pest control company came to the resort Monday to treat the room. Carr says she has been using over the counter allergy medicine to treat the bites.
The creepy crawlers can be hard to spot and it's best to find the problem early. The EPA has some tips on what to look for. First, look for rusty or red-colored stains on bed sheets or mattresses. Secondly, the bugs also like to hide in seams of furniture and appliances so check there.
TODAY'S TMJ4 also reached out to the Sauk County Health Department and they say there have been no complaints relating to this resort since 2009.
