Take a look at the article "Alpine huts take drastic action to ensure the bed bugs don't bite" explaining how a German refuge is asking walkers to microwave their sleeping bags on arrival in an effort to combat the infestation. In Corsica, we have seen the problem increasing with people being bitten in refuges, hotels and even in ferry cabins on the overnight journey here.

If you know that you are prone to bites, spray your bags and equipment with repellents before you come and be sure to pack some antihistamine cream and tablets just in case.
