This is fresh air anterior gross 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 but if that makes you think you’d better start scrubbing right away , I guess , Rob Dunne , says the real goal is to create a healthy balance of all the microbes that co-habit with us. You might be observing that balance with some antimicrobial sanitizers done inventories microorganisms and insects in our homes , the way other researchers might inventory the wildlife in forests , he and the team of scientists who works with analyzed the populations of micro-organisms living on floors in basements on water faucets the surfaces of TV’s in 8 fax systems etc they often work with citizen scientists around the country who’s swab parts of their home for analysis . Dan is theof the new book never home alone from microbe to Miller camel crickets and honey bees the natural history of where we live . He’s a professor in the Department of Applied Ecology at North Carolina State University and the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen robbed unwelcome to fresh air . So I was prepared to learn that there would be bacteria and fungi in my home , I was prepared to learn that there was a lot of micro wildlife I was I am prepared to learn how much and how really creepy Somerfield skin of B . So let’s start just like an overview of like what’s going on in our homes .
So every surface every bit of air every bit of water in your home is alive and every house every building we’ve ever studied all of those things are alive and so the only choice you really get is a witch life and so when we study homes different homes have different kinds of life and those different places and so you look and a hot water heater and there are microbes that are spent they’ve evolved to be able to to deal with really really high temperatures. If you look in your salt shaker there are bacteria like bacteria you find and salt flats in the desert if you look in your attic there are interesting bugs in your hand act that we don’t see elsewhere in your basement you see cave in animals and so you’re hot your house has habitats each of those habitats is a little bit different and there are collectively across houses hundreds of thousands of species . But the average house has thousands of species . And if you breathe in deeply right now . Terry just inhale in that and breath what’s in your lungs at this very moment are thousands of species and a couple of them are bad news . Some of them you depend on and most of them . Nobody has ever ever studied in any real way .
Why are you studying.
So I started off stood in the rain forests. I was fascinated by the fact that you could turn over relief and every leave seemed to have something new and slowly my career drifted toward backyards . And then , and then I eventually found myself in a home is with the realization that a lot of what I’d done in jungles that we could do under the bed and and and showers and we were making the same kinds of discoveries that make and Bolivia are gone are Australia , or anywhere else . And so it was just realization that there are these discoveries people overlooked right where where live right where we all live and then we can engage the public and helping us to make those discoveries and once we figured that out it was hard to go back .
One of the things you’ve learned and studying the micro ecosystem of homes is that there are microbes that live in the Extreme Environments outdoors in very cold temperatures , a very hot temperatures there could live indoors because our homes reproduced the.
