Bed Bugs Are Riding ALL the New York City Subways Right Now

New York City’s bed bug scare is not over. The little bloodsuckers are reportedly spreading across the city via the subway system — and it’s not just the N train.

Transit worker insiders spoke to the Daily News anonymously and shared that the following subway lines have had bed bugs sightings: The Q, the N, the L, and no. 6, 3, 4, 5, trains. The bugs are even crawling their way into the MTA break rooms in Brooklyn and Queens.

“We’ve never had sightings to this magnitude,” said Joe Costales, a chairman with Transport Workers Union Local 100. “We’ve had isolated incidents in crew quarters, but it’s no longer an isolated scenario. It’s throughout the system.”

My skin is crawling right now. I’m seriously considering riding my bike everywhere.
