Since saying that Baltimore is rat-infested is apparently racist, is it also racist to say they have a bed bug problem? Because they do.

Pest control company Orkin named Baltimore the No. 1 bed bug-infested city in the United States in January. The top 10 were:

  1. Baltimore
  2. Washington, D.C.
  3. Chicago
  4. Los Angeles (+2)
  5. Columbus, Ohio
  6. Cincinnati (+2)
  7. Detroit
  8. New York (-4)
  9. San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose
  10. Dallas-Fort Worth (+5)
