Ticks, leeches and especially skunks can mess you up if we want to stay realistic (sharks aren´t a danger to humans) but I never had a bad encounter with any of them.
Edit: The ones complaining about bed bug should maybe reconsider their living arrangements and habbits. These aren´t a normal occurrence.

I guess 88.7% of people voting have never been stung by one.... Cockroaches are gross and mosquitoes are annoying as fuck, but some wasps are fucking psychopaths.

Still, while I avoid them like the plague, I can kind of deal with them now. Flies on the other hand, are super annoying. Same with mosquitoes, though where I'm now there are barely any. What I used to do was sleep with my who body covered with a blanket/sheet, only leaving my mouse and nose outside so mosquitoes wouldn't annoy me at night.
I chose flies, because you can't hear mosquitoes until they are close to you. You can hear flies in small rooms and you will see them, as they are hyperactive little shits.

Terrible, disgusting, hard to kill with insect repellent (I can't just squish it like everybody else, can't stand the imagination of gooey and crushed cockroach)
On the other hand, I fear snake the most.
Two almost "intimate" encounter with snakes changed my whole life.
Imagine finding a snake inside your bedroom, crawling under the door, and the only thing that made me realize it was that the snake was stuck on the glue side of sellotape trash and it made sound. 🤢
The second encounter (hopefully the last one in my life) was finding a snake hanging on the doorknob outside my friend's bedroom (she was sleeping inside) and the snake was only 2 meters away from me and my bedroom.
I called my friend, she woke up, I told her not to come out, she stood on her bed, preparing for the worst. I tried to make the snake fall into the plastic bag I put under but it terribly failed and the snake slithered under the door and made its way inside my friend's bedroom.
We tried to use salt (some myth said snake fear salt), TOTAL FAILURE. 🤢
We tried to made it dizzy by spraying insect repellent (the only "weapon" we have), the snake got a little bit dizzy but we almost get ourselves intoxicated by spraying too much repellent inside a closed room.
I used triple hand gloves (double medical gloves and one thick garden gloves), caught the dizzy snake, put it inside the plastic bag, threw it to the garden outside far from the house.
Both of them happened inside the same house, where my friend and I used to rent.
The house was near paddy field so maybe the snake came from there......
Btw the battle versus snake all happened after midnight, maybe 1AM or 2AM.
I thank God for making me decide that I should sleep very late those nights.

When I was younger, a bunch of them literally lived in one of those hard to clean blenders. Was cleaning it out one day, and came back with a trauma. Now every time I see one, I almost puke.
I might be a millennial, but when it comes to kitchen supplies, I am like my dad. Kitchen motto: "hard to clean, trash it."

There's others on here that come close, but most of the rest of them can be cool in the right context.
Certain types of snakes are pretty cool, certain types of spiders if you've got them secured in a habitat.
Both of those two can be pets.
I suppose the ones that are never cool would be:
ticks, bed bugs, wasps, mosquitos, flies, and cockroaches...
so my choice was really from those six... and the worst of the bunch, if you ask me, are those damn roaches! 😠
They're creepy, disgusting, and worst of all, difficult to kill! Even after you kill them, they still cause problems. Worst one, for sure. 🤢

If I live in a plantation or a farm, some of the pests might be my worst enemies, but here in my home, freakin mosquitos are just the worst mmm...

You're constantly checking out your bed, the weird sensations on your arms, legs...
The true nightmare.

I heard some minister in India passed some retarded law that banned killing stray dogs recently though, India, Bangadesh, Burma etc all have stray dog problems, but I think India probably has the worst of those, like where somebody could legitimately be killed by a pack of dogs going home.
I hate stray/unattended dogs, that includes dogs owned, but where the owner just basically abandons them to free roam the area. They so often become violent because they decided you entered their territory even if they have owners. There was some schoolgirl that had her face mauled while going out in the morning, free roaming dogs should be put down due to the potential danger they present.
Mosquitoes, cockroaches, fleas, ticks and other irritating non-human animals.
