The mosquito has been called the Louisiana state bird. I would call it a love/hate relationship, but it's all hate.Orkin has released their list of "Top 50 Mosquito Cities" and Lafayette has claimed a spot on the list.

Holding down the number one spot on the list is good ole Atlanta. Rounding out the top five is Washington D.C., Chicago, New York and Miami - Fort Lauderdale. Three Louisiana cities made the list - 

27. New Orleans
32. Lafayette
40. Baton Rouge

We all know how many mosquitoes we have to deal with here in South Louisiana, imagine what it's like in Atlanta.
