CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

For the third year in a row, Chicago has topped the list for being the bed bug capital of America, according to Orkin.

Orkin's list ranks cities by the number of treatments it had in 2014.

"Bed bugs are a serious issue across the country, and they're very difficult to control," Orkin Entomologist and Technical Services Director Ron Harrison, Ph.D. said in a statement. "Bed bugs are not limited to any level of cleanliness or income, which means they can be found in any home or hotel. They're great hitchhikers, and people often bring them inside on their clothes or in their luggage."

1. Chicago
