OKLAHOMA CITY – One of the largest pest control companies has released its list of the top 50 mosquito-infested cities in the United States, which includes two cities in Oklahoma.

The two biggest cities in Oklahoma made the list: Oklahoma City at #20 and Tulsa at #34.

Terminix says they used service data across more than 300 branches nationwide and identified cities where residents had the highest number of mosquito services last year.
