GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids and its metro area are the 18th-worst place in the country for bed bugs, according to pest control company Orkin.

Every year, the company puts together a list of the worst cities in America based on the number of service calls they have there.

For 2019, Grand Rapids had the 18th-most calls for bed bugs, up two spots from the year before, according to Orkin.

The company makes the list using the volume of service calls for cities and their metro areas from Dec. 1, 2018 to November 30, 2019.
