    This video from over the weekend is making the rounds on Youtube and the some of the local news outlets in Chicago:

    http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/bed-bug-chicago-transit-authority-red-line-271215801.html

    I am not an expert and the video is grainy, so I am not qualified to say 100% that they are indeed truly bedbugs. But regardless, I wish the person taking the video had made a report to the CTA with the train car number, so they could pull it as they claim they would have for inspection and treatment if needed.

    Should have made a report and also collected the insects which would have been a way to make a more positive identification.
