What Bit Me?

Well, if you're at HQ, it's either someone looking for a promotion or bedbugs:
  • There are some unwanted guests inside Chicago's Public Safety Building.

    The 35th and Michigan Avenue location has a bedbug problem.

    Both the Chicago Police headquarters and the Chicago Fire Department headquarters are located in the building.

    A spokesperson for CPD says the problem is being taken care of and should be fixed rather quickly.
Quickly? We had this up in the comments at least two months ago, maybe longer. That isn't "quickly." That's more like "one of these days."

Fill out those Exposure Reports boys and girls. Maybe FOP can somehow get some compensation for fumigating your house when you bring them home from work.

This is good. It shows that the CPD is one with the people. It shares their infestations.

I have to ask.

Wonder if Ebola can be transmitted by bed bugs or mosquito's?

It is all a cleaver plan to get the people to want to leave headquarters and go back to the street. . . .Yea right they could be knee high in rats shit and they would never leave.

Bed bugs are just the tip of the problem. I saw a lizard in the 1st floor men's room.

Yeah this goes back to at least February when they first surfaced. People were collecting them on the floors and they even put boxes under a few cubes to help catch them.

Well when you have sex offender registration at the building what do you expect.

There is probably a crab lice infestation as well. Wouldn't suggest taking a deuce while at headquarters.

Bedbugs in the Bunker? Imagine that.

We've been dealing with bedbugs, ants, roaches, even mice in squad cars for years. Only until headquarters got a taste of it did this become an issue. What do expect in a Third World police department?

When CFD moved into HQ they should have left their beds and city issued pajamas at their old place.

About a year ago, the Chicago Tribune (not exactly an anti Chicago and anti-Chicago machine rag) had an article that stated Chicago had the highest number of bed bug infestations in the nation. I remember one of the comments under the article saying that this was another great accomplishment of the the democratic party. LOL!!!!!

Maybe those shitbag sex offenders you see lined up outside to register had something to do with the infestation. Here, let's leave these for the damn police...

Ask FOP to do something? They wont even return a simple phone call. One lady that works there told me that the officers working in fop were all appointed and lazy dog asses.

Bedbugs and other such vermin are common everyday occurrences in third world countries and banana republics. Get used to it.

First bed bug spotted may 2013. It Took numerous I.o.d. reports and constant complaining before exterminators came out in December.
Bed bugs are a constant sighting here and the city is not taking care of it. It also won't be long until officers on the streets bring one home. They are creeping up in many police stations, hospitals etc. Shake everything out. By the way to the female p.o. at HQ 3rd floor married to a 'boss'/ please seek professional help you are Nuts, insane, off your rocker, a few fries short. Nobody likes your arrogant & condescending personality. How long b4 you pull your gun out again on a coworker? Priceless. Go back to 009. They threw a party when you left. Maybe they are missing you.

Last year someone I know in Arizona had that problem in their house.

To cure it they threw out all the bedding, washed all the cloths in hot water and bleach watched all surfaces.

Then they heated the house to 138 degrees Fahrenheit for half a day.

No problems since then.

Let's het up HQ to 138 degrees; only let's not tell anybody we are doing it.

On a serious note I am a self taught expert on bed bugs. Call me Bed Bug Bob. I own some small rental buildings and the bugs are unfortunately on the rise. I'm also cheap/thrifty and refuse to hire a "professional".

Bed bugs can be dealt with effectively. It's a myth that pesticides don't kill them. Newer pesticides work fine.

Heating up an area to 120 degrees plus for a few hours and using fans for convection also kills the little buggers and their eggs.

The city could deal with this easily. Let Rahm's brother open a pest control company and get a no bid contract and I imagine the problem would be solved quickly.

Solutions for bedbugs. Using all four work best.

1. Hot vapor steamer.

2. Drying out compounds. Cimex or dichotomous earth work well and provide a long term killing effect.

3. Newer pesticides. Some brand names:

Temprid SC

Transport Mikron

Or products containing






4. Using a bed bug heater which is essentially a heater used for water damage remediation. It can heat up a room to up to 140 degrees.

The worst part of bed bugs besides the initial cost and hassle is the fear they put into people. I had to purchase a microscope to ID bugs when people got paranoid.

The nymph German cockroach, most common six legged roach in our area, looks very much like a bed bug. Front legs are turned differently and it has 2-4 cerci on the bottom. Cerci look like tiny legs or possibly the mare's penis.

Someone ask the Superintendent what the mare's wee wee looks like. I'm only guessing.

Hate to say it but sibling of Rahm would be planting bedbugs to drum up business. Maybe that is what was done at HQ.

On a related note, now what is going on in the lobbies of all our west and southside stations these days.

Baltimore County (MD) Courthouse had to be shut down for a day last week because of bedbugs. One more reason to refuse jury duty.
