Chicago is America’s ‘Ratiest City’ for the sixth year in a row

Windies City has topped the list of racist cities in the United States for the sixth year in a row.

The Orkin, Atlanta-based Pest Control Service, is based in the U.S. on the number of new rat treatments from September 1 to August 31 each year. The result is a list of 50 cities, with the most changing locations each time the list is updated. Chicago, however, is still No. 1.

“Squirrels specialize in sniffing food and shelter and are resilient in their way of obtaining both,” Orkin biologist Ben Hotel said in a company press release. “The residential properties offer ideal habitat for rats, and once they settle, they are able to produce re-rod quickly and in large quantities.”
Efforts to control the city’s rat population have been going on for years. Chicago’s “war on rats” escalated in 2001 with the introduction of a new rat task force. Residents also began to accept cats to squash their numbers.

Orkin’s top 10 list included Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Detroit, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Denver and Minneapolis.

How epidemics have increased the rat population

According to Orkin, statewide orders for home stays and businesses close to the country have not only affected the human population.

Rats are becoming more aggressive as rest restaurants are closed, the CDC says
U.S. Department of Disease Control and Prevention The centers have a full section on its website dedicated to mouse control.

According to the website, “community-wide closures have reduced the amount of food available to rats, especially in commercial areas.” “There has been an increase in rat activity in some jurisdictions as rats search for new sources of food.”

And Orkey warns that rat activity will “only continue to increase” as the rats begin to seek warmer shelter as the months get colder.

Chicago may not be the only city in trouble. Rankings for other cities in Orkin’s “Ratist Cities” list can be found on the company’s website.
