Oct 23, 2019  •  Post A Comment

A new list has been released of the most rat-infested cities in America, and topping the list is Chicago. Los Angeles comes in at No. 2, followed by New York at No. 3.

Washington, D.C., at No. 4 and San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose at No. 5 round out the top five.

The list comes from pest control company Orkin, which notes that Chicago claimed the top spot on the list for the fifth consecutive time.

New to the top 10 this year are Minneapolis-St. Paul at No. 8 and Atlanta at No. 10. Others in the top 10 are Detroit at No. 6, Cleveland-Akron at No. 7 and Philadelphia at No. 9.

The top six cities are unchanged from the previous list.
