Chicago has once again been named the number one city for bed bugs...gross!
Chicago has claimed the top spot on Orkin’s Top 50 Bed Bug Cities List for the second year in a row, the pest control business said Monday.
The company compiled the list based on data from metropolitan areas where it performed the most bed bug treatments from Dec. 1, 2020 to Nov. 30, 2021, according to a news release.
Philadelphia and New York obtained second and third place, respectively, and experienced the largest jumps - with Philadelphia climbing 12 spots and New York moving up nine spots on the list.
Along with Chicago, two other Illinois cities were ranked in the top 50 - Champaign, which came in at No. 13, and Peoria, which was ranked at No. 45.
Ewww...I've dealt with bed bugs before and it's not fun.
