    The video of bed bugs on the CTA is terrifying. Also:

    “Buses and trains also undergo annual fumigation.”

    Annual? Like once per year?? We have a bed bug epidemic in Chicago, not to mention the possibility of other pests attracted to food on the floor. I wonder if it’s even the type of fumigation that kills bed bugs, which has to be very specific (regular fumigation does not kill them).
