Could ants help eradicate the tiny nightmare that is the bed bug? In this old article the author writes that a freight train crew found a solution—”The same crew say they have a remedy for bed bugs, which infest their caboose after hobos have paid it a visit.

It has also been noted more recently that house centipedes will “enthusiastically eat bed bugs,” as do fire ants, which quickly consume the critters.
Let’s look in to this, whoever is in charge of this stuff! And also how to get rid of the bed bug eating warriors once they’ve done their job.
