The Most Infested Cities

I cannot stand bugs or spiders.   Luckily, here’s a list of cities to avoid if you have a thing about spiders, bees, bugs etc.

RATS. In a study back in 2007, New York City had the most rats in the country.  Possibly as many as 100 MILLION.  Houston came in second, and Boston was third.

KILLER BEES. Angry, Africanized killer bees first showed up in the U.S. in Hidalgo, Texas in 1990.  And since then, it’s remained the killer bee capital of the country.

ALLERGENS. Dayton, Ohio ranked the highest for allergens in a study that looked at pollen scores and the number of allergy medicines used per capita.  Wichita, Kansas is second, and Louisville, Kentucky is third.

SHARKS. New Smyrna Beach, Florida has had the most shark attacks of any city in the U.S., with 219 confirmed attacks since 1882.

BEDBUGS. Based on a study by Terminix, New York City has the most bedbugs in the country.  Philadelphia has the second most.  But on a state-by-state level, Ohio has the most bedbugs in the U.S.

BUGS. There hasn’t been a study done on a city level, but by state, Florida has the highest level of cockroaches, ants, and termites.  Louisiana is second, and Texas is third.
