Can I just coat all the walls of my apartment with this? A team of biologists has found how to make a material that insects aren't able to walk on. The surface of the material is simply too slippery—the bugs can't get a grip with their creepy little feet.
In the future, something like this material could go on windowsills, building facades and interior pipes that often attract bugs, according to the University of Freiburg, the German university where the bug-repelling material's makers did their research. Maybe in the future your entire apartment building will shed pests like a slicker sheds rain.
