Two Iowa Towns Make "Worst Bed Bug" List

Iowa lands a lot of great "Top Ten" lists.  Here's a list on which NO Iowa town wants to land:  the worst bed bug cities in America.

The Orkin pest control company has revealed their annual bed bug city rankings and while an Iowa city DIDN'T make the top ten, two made the top 50:  Davenport at 42 (incorrectly listed as an Illinois town) and Cedar Rapids at 44.

 Baltimore tops the list for a third year in a row, with data showing Orkin performed the most bed bug treatments there from December 1, 2017 – November 30, 2018.

Davenport is actually new to the list, joining other additions like Lansing, Michigan, Orlando, Florida,  Ft. Wayne, Indiana and Youngstown, Ohio.  Cedar Rapids was on the list during the previous year, but is down four spots.
