Now that's a big surprise.

Four of the Buckeye State’s largest metros were ranked near the top of a national list. Unfortunately, it's for bed bugs.

Orkin released its annual bed bug rankings on Thursday, which ranked four Ohio metros in the top ten for 2013: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton.

Cincinnati was ranked fifth, which was an improvement from 2011, when the city was ranked No. 1. That top spot is now held by the Windy City.

Charlotte made the biggest jump on the 2013 list, climbing 18 spots. The largest drop came from Omaha, Neb., which fell 20 spots.

In a release Orkin said bed bug infestations are on the rise, noting its parent company experienced a 20 percent increase in its the bed bug business last year.
