ATLANTA – The Atlanta region tops Orkin’s list of 50 best mosquito cities for the fourth year in a row. Atlanta is followed by Washington, DC and Chicago. Twenty-one subway areas in the southeast are included in the ranking. This is the largest region in the United States. (CLICK HERE to download an infographic from Orkin).

“Mosquitoes are a public health threat,” said orkin entomologist Mark Beavers, Ph.D. “Zika virus is one of the most notable mosquito-borne diseases right now, and it is likely to be a problem again this year, especially in areas where the type of mosquito that can transmit the virus is thriving added Beavers, who recently attended the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Aedes Vector Control Summit 2017, a forum to improve mosquito control methods and reduce the risk of diseases like Zika.

Mosquitoes are a problem in the US and become more active as temperatures rise. The mosquito season often runs from April to October.

In Orkin’s top 50 mosquito towns list, subway areas are sorted by the number of mosquito customers served from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017. The list includes both inpatient and commercial treatments.
