Which city is home to the most severe bed bug infestation?

This is the one superlative that no city wants to win. Orkin, a pest control company, recently published its Top 50 bed bug cities list. It was compiled from data from places where Orkin had performed the most treatment for bedbugs between December 1, 2020 and November 30, 2021. What is the worst type of bed bug infestation?

Chicago topped Orkin's top 10 list for the second consecutive year. It seems like bed bugs love Chicago. Philadelphia jumped 12 places to take the number 2 slot. New York City rounds out the top three. The Big Apple has risen a remarkable nine places from last year. These are the top ten places on Orkin's 2022 List:

  1. Chicago

  2. Philadelphia

  3. New York City

  4. Detroit

  5. Baltimore

  6. Indianapolis

  7. Washington, D.C.

  8. Cleveland, Ohio

  9. Columbus, Ohio

  10. Cincinnati

Baltimore fell three places last year, while Washington, D.C. dropped four. Grand Rapids, Michigan (now at number 11), and Los Angeles (now at number 12) were the cities that fell out of the top 10.

We hope you're sleeping well, and that you're not living in one of the top 10 highest bed bug infestation cities. If you are, well, give us a call so we can help get rid of those bed bugs for you.
