Where are you most likely to spot a roach or a rat at home? Bloomberg tallied US Census 2013 American Housing Survey to find the most vermin-infested cities across the country.

The numbers are based on percentage of households reporting vermin. By type, Philadelphia residents reported the most mice, Tampa the most cockroaches, and Seattle the most rats.

But add all the reports together and give them an overall score, New York takes the title for most vermin, with Austin coming in second. Detroit residents were least likely to report a sighting.
