Good Bugs, Bad Bugs: Introduction

You may not have met one in person, but microbes are everywhere! They’re on us, in us and around us.

A microbe – a.k.a. micro-organism – can be good or quite bad. But we need them to survive!

They are very tiny living things who can only be seen using a microscope.

Microbes are so small, that if you got a teaspoon of soil there would be over 1 million microbes in it. That’s quite a tight squeeze!

And there’s so many of them! There are more microbes on the Earth than all the humans, animals and trees put together!
