That bites.

On his Sirius XM Radio show Wednesday, Howard Stern revealed that he was "scratching every minute" after bed bugs recently infested his NYC radio studio.

Fumigators arrived over the weekend, and "supposedly we're 100 percent bed bug-free," added Stern, 56, whose limousine also was home to the parasitic insects (it had to be fumigated with poison gas).

Bedbugs have been spreading all over NYC.

Nike’s tourist-friendly flagship store had to be closed because of them, as well as a popular Abercrombie & Fitch shop and a Times Square theater.

Stern jokingly blamed the sudden bedbug epidemic on the 1972 U.S. ban of synthetic pesticide DDT.

"Now they're back!," Stern said of the bedbugs. "Because of hippies with their … DDT-inhibition!"
