Bed Bugs Invade New York City’s Transit System

FAIRFAX, Va. (September 10, 2014) – Proving yet again that nowhere is safe from these exceptionally hardy and mobile pests, bed bugs have taken over New York City's subway system. Transit workers and passengers have both reported sightings, leading to the fumigation of multiple subway lines. What makes a bed bug infestation on the subway lines so worrying is the ensuing possibility that people are bringing the blood suckers back home with them, to the office, the movie theater, or anywhere else where they come in contact with people and fabric.

Bed bugs are able to survive for months without feeding, so waiting a bed bug infestation out isn't an option. It's vital to take proactive measures and contact a pest professional to eliminate these pests, as they are notoriously difficult to eradicate.
