There’s got to be a top 10 list for everything these days, so it makes sense that the Daily Beast would come up with a list of America’s most bed bug infested cities. I immediately expected New York City to come in at No. 1 on this list, especially after all of the stories about infestations at various stores, movie theaters, and major companies. But that award actually went to Cincinnati, Ohio on this list. And when you read this snippet from the site, you’ll see why!
David Ralph Hoffman, owner of Merlin’s Pest Control, says if you don’t know someone who has had a bedbug problem, you don’t live in Cincinnati. At Merlin’s they rate their horror stories on a scale of 1 to 10. The worst was an apartment occupied by someone who bragged about the last time he’d had a bath (not recently). The apartment was also occupied by about 100,000 bedbugs, Hoffman says, kept in check only by an equal number of German cockroaches. “The one we had that we call our 9.5, the gentleman was a World War II vet and pale, sick, dying, grumpy as hell—and we found over 50 bedbugs in the hat he was wearing.”
Check out the full list on the Daily Beast. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
