The pest control company Orkin released its top 50 Rattiest Cities list of 2016 today and the Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto area ranked at 32.
They came in as the third California area on the list behind (No.4) Los Angeles and (No.5) San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, with (No.47) San Diego being the final California city.
The cities are evaluated by the number of rodent treatments Orkin performed from Oct. 1, 2015 to Sep. 30 2016, and these rankings do include residential and commercial treatments, according to Orkin.com.
The top three cities were Chicago who is No.1 again for back-to-back years, (No.2) New York and (No.3) Washington D.C.
In a recent survey orchestrated by Orkin, they discovered that of the people surveyed, 40 percent have had rodents in their home at some point.
