That’s what the email I got from Orkin said last week.
The headline was
This doesn’t look good, Village Of Lakewood
“What?” I thought.
Sorry, Village Of Lakewood. The results are in, and the rat’s out of the bag: You made this year’s list of the 50 Rattiest Cities by Orkin.
Now the Skinner household has been having mice problems…but rats?
I’ve never seen one in Lakewood.
Our cat Keely just killed a mouse two weeks ago.
Ate everything but the innards.
And hat same week I filled all the holes between the garage and the interior of the house with steel wool.
Even got excited when I found mouse droppings and what could have been the makings of a nest in one storage areas.
Don’t think so.
Then, I clicked on the “Read more” button and found Chicago at the top of the list:
The cities are ranked by the number of rodent treatments the company performed from October 1, 2015 – September 30, 2016. This ranking includes both residential and commercial treatments.
- New York
- Washington D.C.
- Los Angeles
- San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose
- Minneapolis-St. Paul
Looking at the list, it occurred to me all of those cities voted for Hillary Clinton, too.
Just an unfortunate coincidence, I’m sure.
