I have lived in Colorado my entire life, and I can honestly say I’ve never seen rats running around the streets. But believe it or not, Denver is one of the worst cities in America when it comes to vermin!

Pest control company Orkin has just come out with their annual list of the ‘Top 50 Rattiest Cities’ and Denver made the top ten of the list you do NOT want to be on.

The company determined their list based on the number of rodent treatments they’ve handled between September, 2021 and September, 2022.
