Chicago is the country’s rattiest city, for the third year in a row.  Orkin released their top 50 list for the cities with the worst rat infestations this morning.  Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco (tied with Oakland) and Washington, DC were the top five.  Technical Director of Orkin’s Midwest Region John Kane says residents should properly store food, clean up crumbs and spills, and block all possible entryways for rodents.
