The pest control & rodent removers over at Orkin recently reminded folks that Fall marks the start of rodent season when these unwanted pests seek food & shelter to survive the winter – that means coming in your properties! In honor of the occasion they’ve put together their list of the “Top 50 Rattiest Cities” in America. The cities were ranked by the number of rodent treatments (residential & commercial) that Orkin performed from October 2016 through the end of September this year. Interestingly, for the 3rd year in a row Chicago has taken top spot.
“Rats and mice begin looking for warmer, more insulated places to get through the winter, and these too often happen to be our homes or businesses…Rodents like to chew on wood and electrical wires, increasing the fire danger behind your walls and potentially damage to your home.” Said John Kane, entomologist and Technical Director of Orkin’s Midwest Region.
