There's probably a lot more than six places in the photo where creepy crawlies like to hang out. But here's six of them to think about.

  1. On the dog—dust mite, fleas, and ticks

  2. In the wooden window sill—carpenter ants

  3. On and in the humans—bunches of stuff; check out Body Creepy Crawlies

  4. In the books—silverfish, book lice, pseudo scorpion

  5. In the wooden table—house borer beetle

  6. In the wool blanket—clothes moth

Fascinating. Take me back to the room.
