Might be hard to do laundry where you are but washing with VERY hot water kills them off. Another idea, wrap clothing in plastic bags in the hot sun and the heat will kill them off as well. The bites look like little red bumps. btw, others in close proximity will need to do the same. If you can get steam, you can use that to clean linens n clothes as well. High heat is a bed bugs enemy. Good luck.
You just gave me an idea for items to include in the care packages....

I was getting pretty well bit up at night when I first got here but supposedly the issue here is sand flies, although I've yet to see anything actually on me. I sprayed down my mattress with deet and have hardly had any bites since.

I was going to suggest possibly sand fleas, not bed bugs. Bed bugs you can see if you feel them. Glad you got them gone though. Stay safe.
