Nashville one of country's Top 50 'rattiest' cities, report says
NASHVILLE, Tenn. —
A new study released by Orkin Tuesday might just leave some people saying, "Oh, rats!"
Music City is ranked 40th of the Top 50 "rattiest" cities, according to a list released by the pest control company.
Chicago and New York retained their positions from last year at number one and number two respectively, while Los Angeles and San Francisco/Oakland moved into the three and four spots. Washington, D.C. came in 5th, WJLA reported
Meanwhile, Memphis ranked 43 on the list.
The study was part of Orkin's reminder that fall is also rodent season and that over 20 million of them make their way into homes every year, according to the National Pest Management Association.
“Rats and mice begin looking for warmer, more insulated places to get through the winter, and these too often happen to be our homes or businesses,” John Kane, an entomologist and Technical Director of Orkin’s Midwest Region said in a statement.
