Fact or Myth: Can You Catch Bed Bugs On the Train?
You could be traveling with some unwanted passengers during your commute. Can you bring them home with you or is it a myth.
Bed bugs are one of the most resilient bugs in the country. It's no surprise that they can travel in their owners belongings and make it on board a train. Am I the only one who's mad that they don't have to pay?
According to the New York Post, MTA subway trains in Queens were delayed recently because of bed bug sightings in the control tower.
The pest control website, Rest Easy Pest Control warns about the dangers of attracting unwanted parasites on a commuter train. According to their site, yes, bed bugs can travel and live on a train but the odds of them stay permanently are not likely as they need to feed off people to survive. However, the odds of someone transferring bed bugs on a train, bus, or any form of public transportation is absolutely possible.
