    Chicago is deemed to be the worst city for bedbugs.

    Bedbugs can be hard to detect and usually feed on the blood of sleeping humans and animals.

    Chicago residents probably won’t be happy with a new proclamation from a pest control company.

    Orkin officials have said Chicago has the worst bed bug problem in the country based on their call activity.

    Orkin's ranked cities with the worst bed bug infestations. Denver, Los Angeles and Detroit also came in near the top. New York City was listed at number 10.

    These bugs are reddish-brown in color and usually leave behind a rust-like stain on sheets.

    The unwanted bugs usually hide in cluttered homes, choosing mattress seams and electrical outlets for hiding places.

    Although bed bugs are not known to cause disease, they can result in a skin infection if the affected person scratches excessively.
