MID-MICHIGAN (WNEM) -

It seems Mid-Michigan is in need of a Pied Piper…or at least a good rat catcher.

New research from Orkin lists the Flint, Saginaw and Bay City region as the 41st most rat-infested areas in the nation.

Orkin released its list of the top 50 rattiest cities Monday. Chicago topped the list but Detroit, Mid-Michigan and the Grand Rapids area all made the top 50.

Orkin's ranking is based on the number of rodent treatments performed over a year.

In fact, the company says 40 percent of people have had rodents in their home at some point.

So, with fall marking the start of rodent season here are some tips to keep them out of your home:

  • Look for possible entry points, like cracks in walls or spaces under doors
  • Install weather strips around entryways
  • Store food properly and clean up crumbs quickly
