For the second year in a row, Baltimore tops Orkin's Top 50 Bed Bug Cities list. It moved down three spots from past year.

The list is based on treatment data from the metro areas where Orkin performed the most bed bug treatments. The ranking includes both residential and commercial treatments.

"The number of bed bug infestations in the United States is still rising", says Dr. Tim Husen, an Orkin entomologist.

Washington came in second, followed by Chicago; Los Angeles, which moved up two spots; and Columbus, Ohio, respectively. According to Orkin beg bugs are parasitic insects that "actually feed on blood from humans and warm-blooded animals to survive".

In addition to being found in beds, they can also infiltrate offices, grocery stores, hotels, and gyms and hide in luggage, clothing and on your body.
