Earlier this year, two cities in North Carolina were ranked among the most rat-infested cities in America.

The famous pest company Orkin released a list of the top 50 rat-infested cities in the United States. Here's what the two in North Carolina were.

2. Charlotte, NC. This city was ranked number 42 on the list.

One website says, "Charlotte is another city with a ratty history, as it were. In 2016, a discount store in Charlotte made local headlines after an employee reported rats, and rat droppings were rampant there."

1. Raleigh, North Carolina. This city finished at number 35 on the list.

This isn't the first time Raleigh has appeared on the list. In 2020, it was ranked 26th in America. They've improved this year, landing at 35.

Those are the two cities in North Carolina that have been ranked as some of the most rat-infested cities in the United States. If you have a rat problem near you, you might need to consider giving Orkin a call!

What do you think about this? Are you surprised these two cities made the list? Do they deserve to be on the list? What do you think North Carolina can do to not be on the list next year? Have you ever experienced any rat problems in your home? What did you do to fix it? Comment below and let me know!
