Baltimore, which has received its fair share of negative press over the past year, has claimed the number one spot on a new “top cities” list.
The top cities for bed bugs, that is. It’s actually the second year in a row that Baltimore has topped the list, which was released Monday by pest control company Orkin.
Among the changes on this year’s list: New York fell four spots to number eight; Dallas-Fort Worth made its first appearance in the top 10; and New Orleans and Flint, Michigan both joined the list of bedbug-infested cities for the first time ever.
Following Baltimore, Washington D.C. checks in at number two, Chicago is ranked number three, Los Angeles climbs two spots to number four and Columbus rounds out the top five. Cincinnati climbs two spots to number six, followed by Detroit, New York, San Francisco and Dallas-Fort Worth.
