    Embattled entertainment giant Disney has agreed to pay $100,000 to a woman who claimed to have been bitten by bed bugs at a Disneyland hotel. Guest Ivy Eldridge claimed that she and her family were beset by bedbugs upon their visit to the Los Angels hotel in April of 2018. She further claimed that she and her family suffered emotional stress and anxiety as they attempted to treat themselves for the bites, according to KTLA.

She claimed she received costly medical treatment after developing a rash over her entire body when the bugs 'sucked her blood until they were gorged,' and had to take time off of work to endure these treatments.

Some 188 local hotels, including 108 located within a one-mile radius of Times Square, have allegedly hosted some very unwanted guests in recent years: bed bugs. That’s according to a skin-crawling new study from Pest Strategies, an online resource for pest removal tips and services. “To bring to light a report that really highlights hotels as the main transmission vector is important,” said 30-year-old Shane Dutka, an operations manager at the Raleigh, NC-based portal, who helped compile the report. “I think this is totally underreported.

The 59-year-old was talking to Woman's Hour presenter Emma Barnett when she said she feels bad she “sometimes” wears knickers under her PJs. Emma Barnett immediately jumped in, saying she always wears knickers under her PJs, saying: “PJs without knickers is unthinkable.” But the internet was quick to disagree, with people commenting online that underwear should not be worn underneath nightwear under any circumstance. The Sun then surveyed celebs to see their preferences - from former Page 3 models to Love Island stars. Statistics show that nearly 40 per cent of Brits sleep in pyjamas, one in five of us sleep in our underwear...

    BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — The USS Connecticut, one of the most elite submarines in the Navy, is beset with a bed bug infestation. Efforts to quell the infestation on board the vessel, moored at Naval Base Kitsap-Bremerton, are ongoing, a Navy spokeswoman confirmed. Navy entomologists found the insects in the perforated bulkheads between bunks on board the Seawolf-class submarine, which carries a crew of more than 100 men. The Navy said the bed bugs were only discovered recently. But several family members of sailors told the Kitsap Sun they believe the infestation has been a problem for a year. Cmdr. Cindy Fields, spokeswoman of the Navy Pacific Fleet’s submarine force, said bed bugs were first reported in December and only on Feb. 19 did Navy entomologists find them on board. Inspections for bed bugs on the boat have continued daily since then, Fields said. When the bed bugs were reported in December, Fields said that the entomologists from Naval Hospital Bremerton “found no indication of bed bugs on more than one occasion.” “Navy criteria for treating submarines or ships requires...
    Sailors aboard an American attack submarine that cost $6billion to build say that the vessel has been infested with bed bugs while commanding officers have been slow to address the problem. The situation on board the USS Connecticut has reportedly deteriorated to the point where sailors began sleeping in chairs or on the floor of the mess hall in order to avoid being bitten by the bloodsucking insects. The infestation is believed to have started a year ago while the ship was taking part in ICEX 2020, a biennial military exercise staged by the US Navy in the Arctic Ocean. ‘We’ve had bed bugs for a year now,’ a petty officer aboard the submarine told Navy Times, which claims to have obtained photographs showing dead bed bugs caught aboard the Connecticut.

    The crew of the fast-attack submarine Connecticut has been subjected to a bed bug infestation in their racks, and sailors assigned to the sub allege that the boat’s command has been slow to fix the problem. The infestation issue began while the sub was taking part in ICEX 2020 in the Arctic Ocean in March 2020 and continued during a deployment last year, according to a Connecticut petty officer who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. “We’ve had bed bugs for a year now,” the petty officer said. “Sailors complained about getting bitten in the racks.” “People are terrified of getting bit,” he added. While sailors allege they battled bed bugs for most of 2020, Cmdr. Cynthia Fields, a Naval Surface Forces Pacific spokeswoman, said the boat’s command first reported the issue in December, and that the “physical presence” of bed bugs wasn’t found onboard until Feb. 19. “Navy criteria for treating submarines or ships requires physical presence of bed bugs to establish existence,” she said.
