Ugh! Motel room bedbugs crash the party

 Woman, in town for relative's birthday, spends itchy night at Groton Super 8; health officials, exterminators get called in

Groton - This birthday celebration included some uninvited - and very much unwelcome - guests.

Last weekend, Nicole Main of Middleton, N.H., came to southeastern Connecticut with her sister-in-law and a friend to celebrate her sister-in-law's 21st birthday with a visit to Mohegan Sun. Afterward they drove to the Super 8 Motel in Groton to spend the night.

"I didn't sleep very well," Main said Monday. "I was itchy all night."

In the morning, she and her friends discovered why: bedbugs. They found them crawling across the sheets and in the crevices of the mattresses they had just slept on.

"I collected a few in a cup and brought them to the front desk," Main said.

Then she called the Ledge Light Health District, which sent an inspector to the motel. Main said she learned to identify bedbugs from training she had in a job she formerly held at a hotel. Neither she nor her friends found any visible marks from bedbug bites.
