    New York, for the second year in a row, according to a study just released by pest-control giant Terminix. Not really a surprise, since NYC is a populous metropolis with well-publicized infestations everywhere from apartment buildings to businesses such as department stores, magazine offices, even Lincoln Center.
    Terminix reports an increase in bed bug infestations in most states during the past year, in part because consumers are more aware and on the lookout for the tiny pests, Terminix entymologist Paul Curtis told me.
    The company's list of most bed bug-plagued cities, based on customer complaints validated by Terminix and infestations discovered during pest calls:

    1. New York
    2. Cincinnati
    3. Detroit
    4. Chicago
    5. Philadelphia
    6. Denver
    7. Washington, D.C.
    8. Los Angeles
    9. Boston
    10. San Francisco
    11. Columbus, Ohio
    12. Dayton, Ohio
    13. Baltimore
    14. Louisville, Ky.
    15. Dallas
