America's Worst Bed Bug-Infested Cities

Bed bugs, National News

13 cities named by both Terminix and Orkin.

| January 6, 2011

While every major metropolis has reported bed bug infestations in 2010 (as well as a rapidly increasing number of smaller towns), some cities have been harder hit than others. Forbes tapped the nation's two largest pest management firms, Orkin and Terminix, to find the cities with the worst bed bug infestations.

Each company has 400 offices nationwide and compiled a list of the hardest-hit metros, based on the number of calls they've received and bed bug jobs performed relative to population. From their lists of the 15 cities with the worst bed bug problems, we then focused in on 13 cited by both.

The top five cities include Cincinnati, Ohio; Chicago; Detroit, Mich.; New York; and Columbus, Ohio.
