Results from Orkin's first-ever "Scariest Pest Halloween Poll" reveal spiders are the scariest pests of 2009.
According to Orkin experts, the pests people consider (and voted) the scariest are not necessarily the most dangerous.
The Atlanta-based pest control leader invited people to vote online at Halloween.Orkin.com for one of six spine-chilling pests.
Following are the scariest pest rankings and percentages from the online poll:
1. Spooky spiders (30 percent)
2. Hair-raising rodents (27 percent)
3. Creepy cockroaches (23 percent)
4. Terrifying ticks (10 percent)
5. Freaky flying/stinging insects (6 percent)
6. Menacing mosquitoes (4 percent)
The Votes Are In, Spiders Win
