The cooler temperatures in the fall often draw many of us inside for cozy, food-fueled movie binges — and, sadly, we are not alone.
Rats want in, too, according to a recent news release by pest control company Orkin. And with many rodents looking for warmer, insulated places to spend the winter, Baltimore has proven to be one of the "rattiest."
Baltimore ranked eight on Orkin's yearly "Top 50 Rattiest Cities List," which was created based on the number of residential and commercial treatments conducted between Sept. 15, 2016 and Sept. 15, 2017.
Baltimore's rat situation showed some improvement. The city was down two spots from last year. We came in behind Washington at No. 5, Los Angeles at No. 3, New York at No. 2, and Chicago, which took the No. 1 spot for the third year in a row.
