Georgia City Named Among The ‘Worst Cities For Bed Bugs’ In The U.S. | 94.9 The Bull – 94.9 The Bull

If you're squeamish about bugs or tiny crawling critters, you may want to look away. A new report lists a city in Georgia as one of the worst places in America for bed bugs.

Pest control company Orkin released its annual list of the U.S. cities with the most reported cases of bed bugs, using data gathered from December 1, 2022 to November 30, 2023, of cities with the most bed bug treatments. One city in the Peach State is among the worst in the country for bed bugs: Atlanta. Georgia's capital city ranked No. 13 overall, rising three places on the list compared to last year's rankings.

Bed bugs are typically around 3/16 inch long and red to dark brown in color and are mostly nocturnal, coming out at night to "take blood meals from sleeping humans," the site states. A bed bug fiasco in Paris last year had people more concerned than ever about the pests. Orkin entomologist Ben Hottel notes that while people may be aware of the bugs while traveling, it's important that they also take precautions at home to ensure their space stays bed bug-free.

"Second-hand items such as clothing and furniture are also common bed bug hiding places, allowing pests an opportunity to hitch a ride home with new consumers," said Hottel. "Examining any new items before they enter your home will help you catch a bed bug infestation sooner, rather than later."

So what else should you do to minimize the risk of infestation? Orkin suggests regularly checking your home for signs of bed bugs, inspecting mattress seams, headboards, baseboards and even electrical outlets and picture frames. Experts also recommend decluttering your home to make spotting the insects even easier.

These are the Top 20 "worst cities for bed bugs," according to the report:

Our city has many bragging rights. We have an incredible food scene, were the birthplace of entertainment, and the city of champions. With so much to be proud of, were bound to be humbled and it seems the pest control company, known as Orkin, is looking to do it.

In news you didnt want to know, Los Angeles has made the list of worst cities for bed bugs. Yes, unfortunately, you read that right. Los Angeles ranked number five on Orkins list of 50 cities across the United States. In case youre wondering who made number one, check out their top bed bug-infested cities below:

You can find the entire 50-numbered list here. Orkins ranking is based on data where they performed the most bed bug treatments between December 1, 2022, through November 30, 2023. It includes both residential and commercial treatments.

If youre wondering how to avoid running into these kinds of L.A. locals, Orkin has some advice.

Check the places where bed bugs hide during the day, including mattress tags and seams, and behind baseboards, headboards, electrical outlets, and picture frames, states Orkin. Inspect when you move in, after a trip, when a service worker visits, or after guests stay overnight, and always examine all secondhand furniture before bringing it inside your home.

This actually isnt the first time a bug has made itself an Angeleno. Our city is home to many roaches too so much that we also made the list of roachiest cities in America.
