There are few states in America that are greater than the Empire State. For better or worse, there are lots of places all over New York that lands on all sorts of different lists outlining the top places all over the region.

You name it, you can find it in the Empire State. It doesn't matter if it's a list of top tourist destinations like Niagara Falls, New York City, or the coolest places for the British to hang out in the summer like Buffalo, us New Yorkers love being the best and on top of rest/.

New York City and Buffalo Among Top American Cities Infested With Bed Bugs

Orkin released its annual list of cities that are the most infested with Bed Bugs in the entire United States of America, and New York's two largest cities made the list... Again.

According to the New York State Department of Health, Bed Bugs have been around for thousands of years and will likely be around for a lot longer.

Bed bugs are small, flat wingless insects that are reddish-brown in color and approximately one-quarter inch long, before feeding (about the size and shape of a small apple seed). They feed on blood, but are not known to spread any diseases to humans. Some people can be allergic to their bites. Getting rid of a bed bug infestation is not easy, but there are steps you can take to control the problem. There are also steps you can take to avoid bringing bed bugs home.
