Bedbugs on sleeping bus

We traveled on the sleeping bus last night from nha trang to Hoi An and we believe we were bitten by bed bugs. Does anyone have suggestions on what we should do immediately to avoid taking them with us?

First tell us the name of the bus company, the best cure for bed bugs is to avoid them at any cost...:-)

They are very resistant to heat and cold, I would start trashing the clothes you used on the trip.

BURN EVERYTHING you had on the bus. All your clothing and suitcases also. Shower and put on NEW clothing that has not been in contact with your old stuff.

Try this link at WEBMed... webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/tc/be…

Yes name the Coach used. It's probably not their fault as the prime cause could be somewhere thousands of kms away. Naming them may at least cause them to fumigate their fleet and break the chain.
