Sorry, but things are about to get a little itchy.

The company Orkin just released its annual ranking of U.S. cities with a serious bed bug infestation problem. As with years prior, three Michigan cities unfortunately made the top 50 list again. And yes, it's the same three cities.

It's a disgusting topic that no one wants to talk about but it's a major problem in some cities across the U.S.

#6 Detroit


#14 Grand Rapids - Grand Rapids dropped two spots on the 2024 bed bugs rankings..


#23 Flint - Flint also dropped two spots on the new rankings list


The list also included Cedar Rapids, Michigan at #39. We believe that was a typo since Michigan has no Cedar Rapids. I think they meant to put Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Cedar Rapids was on the list last year as well.

The annual list is based on the metro areas where the company provided the most treatments for bed bugs in the last year.
