Bedbugs Report Abuse
They’ve been all over the news lately: very easy to bring them into your home and extremely expensive (generally between $1,500 and $5,000, depending on the size of our home) to remove.

Scorpions Report Abuse
They are relatively easy to relocate or kill, but finding a family of them in your mailbox (or dresser drawer) will definitely creep you out.

Maggots Report Abuse
Usually easy to get rid of by disposing of whatever they’re feeding on, but it’s impossible to encounter them in any quantity without getting squeamish.

Asian Lady Beetles Report Abuse
Luckily these ones are seasonal and don’t do much damage … but if they can find a way in, thousands of them will cover entire walls of your home, which makes them rank pretty highly on the creep-out scale.
