INDIANAPOLIS — Despite less travel in 2020, bed bugs were still biting and they were rampant in Midwest cities.

On Monday, Orkin released its annual list of Top 50 Bed Bug Cities. Chicago came in at number one, and six other Midwest cities rounded out the top ten.

Indianapolis came in at number seven.

The list is based on data from where the pest removal company performed the most bed bug treatments from December 2019 to November 2020.
