MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A new study from Terminix shows that New Yorkers are leading the nation’s futile Twitter campaign against mosquitoes.

The study analyzed 500,000+ tweets mentioning “mosquito” to determine where skeeters are getting on tweeters nerves the most. New Yorkers’ furious thumbs are followed by tweets from Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Atlanta.

"For most people, mosquito control means incessant swatting, open flames and noxious aerosols," said Stan Cope Ph.D., director of entomology and regulatory services for Terminix. "We want these tweeters and regular bite victims to know they have simple, professional options. Our mosquito control services are much more effective than sprays and candles, and allow you to enjoy the outdoors without it becoming a big production.”

Additional discoveries from the Terminix Twitter study include:

  1. If the cities were ranked per capita, Glasgow, Mont., would come in at No. 1, followed by Kingsville, Texas; Key West, Florida; Aberdeen, South Dakota; and Woodward, Okla.
  2. A majority of the tweets paired 'mosquito' with 'bites,' 'outside' or 'summer;' many turned violent with 'kill,' 'control' or some choice expletives; and a significant number reflected current headlines with 'GMO' and 'Zika.'
  3. The most-used hashtags include: #Zika, #ZikaVirus, #Health, #Summer and #Bugs.
  4. Women tend to have the itchiest fingers, claiming responsibility for 63 percent of the total tweets.
