Yuck! Just as the warm weather approaches, so does another study done by pest control company Orkin who found Detroit #7 on the list for cities that are the worst for mosquitoes.

The list ranks the metro areas where Orkin conducted the most residential and commercial mosquito treatments from April 1, 2018, to March 31, 2019.

Atlanta ranked No. 1, followed by New York, D.C., Chicago, Houston and Dallas-Ft. Worth.

Besides them being annoying, they can be a health threat as well.

Last year, West Nile virus sickened 104 people in Michigan and resulted in nine deaths!!
