The Worst Bed Bug Cities In The US

It’s probably safe to say that the idea of bed bugs gives most people the creeps. Sadly, 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 just 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. Data shows Orkin performed the most bed bug treatments in Charm City from December 1, 2017 – November 30, 2018 and this is the third year in a row Baltimore has topped the list.

Meanwhile, things seem to be getting worse for New York, which moved up two spots in the Top 50, while Atlanta and Philadelphia just joined the Top Ten, replacing San Francisco and Dallas. There are also a few new cities in the Top 50 this year, including Lansing, Michigan, Orlando, Florida, Davenport Iowa, Ft. Wayne, Indiana and Youngstown, Ohio.
