ST. LOUIS (KYKY) — As the temperature rises, so does the number of our bug bites.

However, it’s not just because you’ve “got sweet blood.” In fact, St. Louis ranks ninth in the country for its high concentration of mosquitoes.

According to a study conducted by Mosquito Squad with data from sister company Thermacell, the top 10 cities for mosquito concentrations are:

  1. Boston
  2. New York
  3. Washington, D.C.
  4. Chicago
  5. Twin Cities, Minn.
  6. Richmond, Va.
  7. Philadelphia
  8. St. Joseph, Mich.
  9. St. Louis
  10. Charlotte, N.C.

Fortunately, Missouri and Illinois were bypassed when it comes to states with the most ticks, which was also evaluated among the data.
