Earlier this year, the beautiful city of Washington, D.C. 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 where Washington, D.C. was ranked.

Washington, D.C. was ranked as the 4th most rat-infested city in the United States.

The website says, "The nation's capital has a lot of rats, per the Orkin survey, though not enough to be No. 1. In 2021, WUSA-TV reported, Washington, D.C.'s 311 hotline service received more than 11,300 calls about rats — a more than 50% increase over 2020 levels."

Despite being ranked on the list of the most rat-infested cities in America, many still consider Washington, D.C. a great place. As long as you can avoid the rats, you should be able to have a good time!

In conclusion, Washington, D.C. has been ranked as one 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!
