CARLSBAD, CA, USA/AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS (Oct. 20, 2011) – At this time of year, many of us take great pains to avoid spiders and other creepy-crawly creatures. But for some, a career working with slithery creatures is exactly what the doctor ordered, according to CareerCast.com, which identifies the nation’s creepiest careers.

“Forensic Entomologist, who studies insects that invade a person’s dead body and decipher insect life cycles to determine the time and manner of death, is the creepiest career on our list,” says Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast.com http://www.careercast.com/. “These little bugs can even offer clues as to when and if a body part was moved after death and the types of injuries that may have occurred.”

Other creepy careers include Arachnologists, who study over 90,000 discovered species of arachnids, including spiders, scorpions, daddy longlegs, camel spiders, ticks and mites; Pest Control Specialists, who must be able to accurately assess and eliminate insect and rodent threats; and Reptologists, who are wildlife biologists specializing in the study of creatures with green scaly skin.****
