Second Floor Bedroom

A scientist made herself chimp nests up trees in Tanzania and spent the night in them, then slept on the ground as a control. She then counted insect bites...
Sleeping up high kept the bugs away, however, with Stewart getting a median count of 28 bites a night while snoozing on the ground versus a median count of one bite on nesting nights. Nesting kept Stewart warmer, as well, especially on the coldest nights.
