The Navy vs… Bedbugs!

Where Do Bed Bugs Come From? Identify Bed Bugs & Bites

Some of us are worried about Red China’s brand-new navy muscling up to chase our navy out of the Pacific Ocean. But the crew of the USS Connecticut, a nuclear submarine, have a more immediate problem.

They’re fighting off an infestation of bedbugs; and so far, it looks like the bedbugs are winning (

It’s not funny. The sailors aboard the boat insist the bugs are still there, despite various measures taken to get rid of them. Because of the bedbugs, the crew is sleep-deprived. This could lead to a disaster: we don’t want the sub crashing into an underwater mountain because the guys steering her can’t keep awake.

It’s almost funny, though. A nuclear submarine! How much does one of those cost? How much havoc could it wreak with its nuclear arsenal? And a bunch of tiny, nasty, dirty little bugs has it just about pinned to the canvas.

    1. No personal experience. I used to work in civil government and the community I worked for had a bedbug infestation. As a result, all of us were required to attend training on recognizing bedbug infestations, including remediation measures, just in case we the infestation spread. Nasty little critters.
