New Study Says Chicago Still Has a Bed Bug Problem

A new study from pest control company Terminix says that Chicago is one of the top 10 US cities with a bed bug problem. According to CBS:

Chicago was ranked 9th on Terminix‘s Top 50 list and came out behind New York, Indianapolis and the top-ranked city of Philadelphia. Boston came in 10th place among the infested cities.

There is a silver lining: The city is improving! Back in 2011, Terminix ranked Chicago No. 4. 

According to Terminix, Ohio “dominated” the list with six cities in the top 50.

The pest control company ranked the cities based on the “number of services rendered in each city in the past year.”

The top 10 bed bug infested cities include:

  1. Philadelphia
  2. New York
  3. Dallas-Fort Worth
  4. Indianapolis
  5. Cincinnati
  6. Los Angeles
  7. Cleveland
  8. Washington, D.C.
  9. Chicago
  10. Boston
