CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) – Chicago has once again won the rat race.

For the eighth consecutive year, the pest control company Orkin has ranked Chicago as the rattiest city in America.

Orkin’s rat rankings were based by the number of new rodent treatments, both residential and commercial, performed in the past year- Sept. 1, 2022 to Aug. 31, 2022- in the country’s metro regions.

New York City came in second. Los Angeles ranked third, while Washington D.C., and San Francisco rounded out the top five.

Chicago’s neighboring cities weren’t exempt from the list. Milwaukee (21st), Champaign (33rd) and South Bend (44th) all appeared in the rankings.
