New York City is no longer the bed bug capital of the United States

As reported by Fox News Health this month, New York City is no longer the bed bug capital of the country! Due in part to the work the fine exterminators at Annihilator eX-Termination and other pest control providers have done over the past 10 years, there are now several cities ahead of New York City in the top 50 list for bed bug treatments per year.

For the first time ever, Baltimore is leading the list.

We all know bed bugs and have heard the horror stories. These little blood-sucking pests can come into your home in many different ways, attaching themselves to luggage or people to travel from one place to another is most common.

And believe it or not, they don't only infest unsanitary homes. The cleanest, most well-kept home is at risk just as much.

Though there is a new city now topping the list, it doesn't mean that the bed bug problem in America has become any less severe. Even though these bugs were virtually unheard of as little as 10 years ago, there are more people in the United States effected today than ever before. There are many cities on the list that have never appeared there before. Cities like Las Vagas, Portland, and Salt Lake City.
