The Top Bed Bug Cities In The U.S.

Orkin released their list earlier this year, and it laid out the cities with the most reported bed bug treatments. The list was pretty interesting. For instance, the top city was Chicago. It was followed by New York and Philadelphia.

So, how did Texas do?

Dallas Was The Top Bed Bug City In Texas

According to their report, Dallas topped out the rest of the cities in Texas. It also outdid many cities in the county. The list placed Dallas in the top 20.

Dallas ranked 17th overall in Orkin's top cities list. It found itself nestled between Atlanta (16), and Pittsburgh (18). The good news is that Dallas actually went down a spot compared to last year.

That's a bit of good news...I guess. Houston was also on the list and came in at 44th.

This whole conversation makes me shudder. Sleep tight and...well, you know the rest.

Can You Guess These Towns From Their Satellite Photos?

I'm always down for a good brain challenge. This one however got the best of me.
It's always a fun time looking up address or cities and seeing them from a satellite point of view. You start pointing out landmarks and things you recognize.

One thing you don't account for however is something looking bigger or smaller than you seemed to think it was. So we started grabbing a bunch of these satellite pictures of cities and towns around Amarillo.

As we looked at them, we thought to ourselves, "how fun would this be to actually have to GUESS what these places are?". So away we went.

Go ahead and try to see how many you can guess correctly!
