Counting The Bugs And Bacteria, You're 'Never Home Alone' ( PAU September 2020)

Presenter: You may be shocked to learn what’s living in your home. The bacteria, the fungi, viruses, parasites and insects – probably many more than you imagined. My guest Rob Dunn says the real goal is to create a healthy balance of all the microorganisms and insects that co-habit with us. Dunn and the team of scientists he works with analyze the populations of microorganisms living on floors, in basements, on water faucets, the surfaces of TVs, etcetera. He’s a professor in the Department of Applied Ecology at North Carolina State University and author of the new book “Never Home Alone” about the microbes, insects, some of them quite exotic, that live in our homes.
