NEW YORK (AP) - Another New York City subway train has been pulled out of service to be fumigated for bedbugs.

NBC New York reports (https://bit.ly/YWxrau ) that the N train was taken out of service Monday after a conductor reported being bitten by bedbugs in Brooklyn.

The conductor was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Bedbug sightings have been reported on at least five subway trains this month.

MTA spokesman Adam Lisberg says the agency has responded aggressively to every report of bedbugs.
