Despite NEw YOrk City's reputation for having a rat problem, it turns out that we are not the worst. Orkin exterminators released their annual Top 50 Rattiest Cities and for the 4th time in a row, Chicago has taken the number one spot with New York City at second place behind them.

Fall temperatures are on the way and so are the rodents. Orkin released its Top 50 Rattiest Cities list today. For the third consecutive ranking, Chicago takes the top spot. The metro regions are ranked by the number of rodent treatments the company performed from September 15th, 2016 – September 15th, 2017. This ranking includes both residential and commercial treatments.

Check out the accompanying article to see what other cities are on the list.
