NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- A Queens MTA control tower was once again shut down for bed beg fumigation Monday night.

The tower that controls turnarounds for M and R trains at the Forest Hills/71st Avenue Station was closed down again, as exterminators were called back after bed bugs were spotted.

It's the third time the place has been swept for bed bugs.

One closure lead to major delays during the evening rush last Wednesday.
