Pest-control experts Orkin release a list each spring of the 20 worst mosquito cities in the U.S. based on the number of service calls the company makes to treat the buggers. There's finally a "top 20 cities" list that (thankfully) leaves off Cincinnati.
"Mosquito bites can transmit West Nile virus and other conditions that cause encephalitis — or swelling of the brain — as well as a relatively new virus in the United States called chikungunya virus," the Orkin report says. "In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention upgraded chikungunya virus to a 'nationally notifiable condition' in the United States, providing state and local health departments with standard definitions for reporting and tracking cases."
If it's alright with you, just take that chikungunya somewhere else.
