Chicago has been named one of the worst cities for mosquitoes:
Once again, Chicago has been ranked as one of the top mosquito cities in the U.S.
The city secured the fifth spot on Orkin's list of the Top 50 Mosquito Cities for the second year in a row, the pest control company announced in a news release early Monday morning.
In a surprising change from previous years, Los Angeles came in at number one, knocking out Atlanta, which held the top spot for the last seven years. This year, three West Coast cities: Fresno, San Diego and Seattle, joined the list for the first time.
According to Orkin, backyards and outdoor activities were maximized in 2020, and that trend is expected to continue in 2021, especially as Memorial Day and summer approach.
