Everybody loves a good list and we just found one we couldn't ignore! The pest control professionals at Orkin kept tabs of all the calls they received last year and tallied up the results. Then they shared the top 20 cities with the most requests for rodent control treatments.
Cities are ideal stomping grounds for rats and mice since the people that live there supply a never-ending food source, largely by throwing away food scraps. Rodents are classified as commensal pests, meaning they share the same food as we do. Rodent control can be especially challenging in a city because even though you may have excellent habits such as cleaning up any food crumbs or spills quickly and disposing of scraps in a covered trash can, other people that live in close proximity to you may not.
