*LIST* The Worst Bed Bug Cities In America
It’s probably safe to say that the idea of bed bugs gives most people the creeps and it seems folks in some cities have a little bit more to worry about when it comes to the gross creatures.
The Orkin pest control company has now revealed their annual bed bug city rankings and if you don’t want to deal with them, you may want to stay away from Baltimore, where data shows Orkin performed the most bed bug treatments from December 1, 2015 – November 30, 2016. For the record, however - this is actually the first time Baltimore has even made it into the Top Five, jumping up nine spots from last year.
Coming in second this year is last year’s number one, Washington, DC, followed by Chicago, New York and Columbus, Ohio.
