Just about all of us waited for warmer weather, but there’s one thing that comes with warmer weather that we could all do without.


Pest control company Orkin has come out with their annual list of the Top 50 Mosquito Cities. Wouldn’t you know that two North Carolina cities have made not only the Top 50 list but the Top 10! I can personally agree to all of this considering these two cities I’ve lived in during my entire 27 years of life. I can’t get away from the mosquitos!

In case you need a little background information on the pests, the breeding season lasts from July through September, but people will be affected by the annoying bites from August through October, which is peak West Mile virus season.

Top Ten Mosquito Cities

  1. Atlanta, GA
  2. New York, NY
  3. Chicago, IL
  4. Houston, TX
  5. Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
  6. Detroit, MI
  7. Philadelphia, PA
  8. Charlotte, NC
  9. Raleigh-Durham, NC

Are you someone who always gets bitten by mosquitos or do they leave you alone? I swear it’s either one or the other!
