MILWAUKEE -- The extermination company Orkin is out with a report that ranks Milwaukee as 16th in the nation when it comes to bed bugs, up six spots from the year before. But the city said the report is misleading.

"This is a marketing ploy to hype the problem of bed bugs," said Todd Weiler, spokesman for Milwaukee's Deparment of Neighborhood Services.

Weiler said Orkin never contacted the City to get its data.

"What they are quoting is the number of treatments they applied in the various cities. What it does not show you is what are the actual trends, what are the actual numbers, whether bed bugs are growing or not."

Weiler said bed bug cases have not changed much from 2013 to 2014.

"Verified complaints dropped from 286 to 278 for a difference of 8 or -2.80 perecent change. I rate the trend as flat holding at about the same rate."
