Harvestmen
Squirrels
Rats - several species
Mice - several species
Mites, large assortment including scabies, demodex, sarcops and some other very vicious people munchers
People parasites such as lice and other. Usually donated by in-laws
Fleas - you people in temperate climes don't have a clue what flea infestation is until you have taken in stray dogs in the tropics. White socks peppered to dark gray in a two minute stroll outside

And very few partridges, they have mostly been eaten, in no pear trees.
