The Maryland city moved up nine spots from its ranking last year. 

Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York City and Columbus, Ohio, rounded out the top five.

Atlanta (No. 16); Charlotte, North Carolina (No. 19); Boston (No. 28); Dayton, Ohio (No. 32); Seattle (No. 34); Orlando (No. 44); and Miami (No. 46) made the top 50.

The cities were ranked based on treatment data from the metro areas where Orkin performed the most bedbug treatments from Dec. 1, 2015, to Nov. 30, 2016.

"We have more people affected by bedbugs in the United States now than ever before," Orkin entomologist and director of technical services Ron Harrison said. "They were virtually unheard of in the U.S. 10 years ago."

Orkin calls bedbugs "hitchhikers" that travel from place to place.

Orkin officials think bedbugs have become prevalent because they've built up a resistance to chemicals.

They also said you might not know you have bedbugs because many people don't have a physical reaction to the insect's bites.

Man dissolves after trying to soak in Yellowstone hot pool

An Oregon man who died after attempting to “hot pot” in a Yellowstone National Park hot spring in June dissolved when he fell into the boiling, acidic water, Time magazine reported.

Time, citing a Freedom of Information Act report request from KULR, said that 23-year-old Colin Scott was looking for a place to “hot pot,” or soak in the waters — a move forbidden by park officials — with his sister.

In the FOIA report, Sable Scott told park officials that her brother “was reaching down to check the temperature of a hot spring when he slipped and fell into the pool.”

Rescue parties who looked for Colin Scott found his body in the pool, but recovery efforts were hindered by a lightning storm and officials had to wait, the report said. The next day, officials could not find any remains because of the pool’s acidic water quality, the report said.

“In a very short order, there was a significant amount of dissolving,” Deputy Chief Ranger Lorant Veress told KULR.
