You go, Cleveland. You're on top again. Or at least near the top, though you shouldn't be too thrilled about these rankings.

Joining three other Ohio cities — Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati — Cleveland is among the top 15 locales that is being bombarded with bedbug infestations according to rankings by Terminix.


With bedbugs in New York dominating the news (they seem to be everywhere in NY, from the Empire State Building to holding placards and protesting the mosque), you might have forgotten that plenty of other towns are being taken over by the little buggers.
