Families Terrorized By Swarms Of Underground Insects That Invade Homes
NEW YORK (CBS 2) An insect invasion is terrorizing New York City homeowners, making life miserable, even dangerous, for many families. Parents have been forced to take extreme measures to protect their children and their homes.
CBS 2s Dave Carlin investigates the growing Upper West Side mosquito mystery:
These rare mosquitoes are extra blood-thirsty and active year-round. Carlin saw some of them in a lab after they were collected in the unlikeliest of places, Bernard Lagans home on West 84th Street.
They trapped 150 mosquitoes in the basement in a 24-hour period coming from underground and into the basement and up in to the house through the air vents and its the same story as the other brownstones on this block, Lagan told Carlin.
Its an invasion that has almost every resident of 84th Street between Riverside and West End Avenue slapping, scratching and suffering.
Theyre hungry. Theyre hungry, said resident Susan Nicholson.

Return to the Lord and repent. Bugs have been known to inhabit satanic places.
I suspect these people are suddenly less fond on their parents’ having banned DDT 50 years ago.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Mosquitos! Break out the DDT!
Sounds like liberals.
We have mosquitoes in Louisiana as well, but it’s not a news story.
Bats eat an amazing number of mosquitos.
Seems Bernard might have a bigger problem with broken pipes in his basement. Eliminate their breeding grounds and you eliminate the mosquitoes. Didn’t NY just get their first cold weather? Well, insects aren’t dumb, they’ve gone inside where it’s warmer.
Rachel Carson bump...
‘Repent’ is a word we don’t hear enough in this country anymore...
I doubt there are more than a handful of non-libs living on the expensive upper west side of Manhattan. It's the "Limousine Liberal" capital of the northeast. Lots of people from the entertainment industry live there. Actors, writers, etc.
So, blood suckers are plaguing the blood suckers. And some people think God doesn’t have a sense of humor...
I always thought that NYC was full of blood-sucking liberals.
you credit them with higher iq’s than is realistic.
That’s particularly nasty if they are living in the sewers, because the only thing they could be feeding on down there are the rats. It’s only a matter of time before they transmit some disease from the sewer rats to these Manhattanites.
