It is impossible to establish the exact number of bugs that we eat when we are asleep. This is because, the location of homes within which people sleep varies, thus, those who live in cities are less likely to eat bugs as compared to the people in the countryside. Spiders are the most common bugs that are swallowed by people while they are asleep.
