Another N train has been taken out of service because of bedbugs.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says bedbugs were found on a Coney Island-bound train Monday after a conductor complained about being bitten.

The conductor had to be taken to the hospital, and the train was fumigated.

There have been at least five bedbug sightings on N trains this month alone.

The MTA says the agency has responded to every bedbug report and says there are currently no plans to fumigate all trains on the N line.
