Cockroaches are gross. They spread germs. They defecate on our silverware. They live in our kitchens, our bathrooms. They thrive on our garbage, our leftover food. And in a city of 8 million, they can be anywhere. But where are they exactly?

Right now there's no up-to-date way to track roach infestations. But restaurant inspectors are on the look out for the 6-legged bugs all the time. This map shows where city health inspectors are reporting roach sightings on any given week.

Check back each week to find out the neighborhood with the highest number of roach infestations.
