Bed bugs at Lombard hotel send woman to hospital http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20110901/news/709019602/ Carrie Brown thought it was one mean and hungry spider that was biting her — and biting her and biting her — during her stay at a Lombard hotel. She was wrong. The insect was a bed bug. A letter she received from TownePlace Suites Chicago Lombard, where she began staying Aug. 21, informed her “a bed bug” was found in the room, and confirmed as such by Ecolab, a Minnesota-based company that specializes in cleaning, sanitizing, infection control and food safety. Brown’s estimated 50 bed bug bites itched and swelled so much that on Wednesday, she had a friend drive her to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, where she was admitted for treatment of an infection called cellulitis.
