CHICAGO — Chicago is no longer the bedbug capital of the nation.

The Orkin Pest Control company says Baltimore is No. 1 this year.

Chicago topped the list over the past four years, and is now ranked No. 3.

The other cities in the top five are Washington, DC, New York and Columbus, Ohio.

Chicago still has its share of pests, however. The city earned the top spot on Orkin’s “rattiest cities” list in October.
