Earlier this year, one city in the beautiful state of Maryland was ranked among the most rat-infested cities in America.

The well-known pest company Orkin came out with a list of the top 50 most rat-infested cities in the United States. Here's what the one in Maryland was.

The city was Baltimore, MD. It was ranked number 6 on Orkin's list.

The CBS News website says, "Baltimore, which ranked No. 8 in Orkin's 2020-released survey, moves up to the sixth spot in the latest rankings — and that's not a great trend. In 2021, city exterminators handled more than 153,000 requests for rodent control, an increase over each of the previous two years, the Baltimore Sun reported."

Despite being ranked in the top 10 on this list, the city of Baltimore is still considered a great place by many. As long as you're able to avoid the rats, you should have a good time!

That's the city in Maryland that has been ranked as some of the most rat-infested cities in the United States. If there's a rat problem near you, you should try to give Orkin a call!

What do you think about this? Are you surprised this city made the list? Does it deserve to be on the list? What do you think Maryland can do to not be on the list next year?
