Sailors aboard a six billion dollar American attack submarine say that the vessel has been infested with bed bugs – and that their commanding officers have been too 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 in March 2020 while the ship was taking part in ICEX 2020, a biennial military exercise staged by the US Navy in the Arctic Ocean.
