This Day in Binghamton History: Fear of bedbugs (1892)


JULY 19 – Today in Binghamton History we are going back to 1892.

Looking back to 1892 we have a local man who worked as a cab driver with a fear of bedbugs.

He hated them so much he was actually driven insane by them.

He grabbed a revolver and made his way through his house, openly shooting at pictures and at the walls – anything to try and kill the bugs.
