Orkin released this year's list of cities with Chicago taking the top spot for the third year in a row, while New York came in second.

Los Angeles is the third rattiest city in the U.S., according to Orkin.

The rankings are based on the number of treatments performed by Orkin from Sept. 15, 2016 through Sept. 15, 2017 and includes both residential and commercial treatments.
