One of our favorite holidays is right around the corner. This Halloween, rather than focusing on combatting our pest nemeses, we thought it would be fun to honor some of our local pests by sharing the best pest costumes from around the Internet.

Peruse the costumes that we've found, and feel free to share your Halloween pest costumes with us on Facebook.

The Mosquito

The Squirrel

The Ant

The Rat

The Spider

The Raccoon
