Los Angeles is ranked first for the third year in a row on Orkin's list of the worst cities for mosquitoes in 2023. Atlanta had previously held the top spot for seven straight years.

Orkin rates the top 50 mosquito-infested cities each year based on how frequently exterminators were called for treatment in the previous 12 months.

Well, one Louisiana city did make the top 50. New Orleans came in at #41 on the list.

It's crazy to think that New York City and other northing cities has more mosquitoes than ones in Louisiana. I thought for sure Baton Rouge and maybe Shreveport would've made the top 50.
