Fun with Fomites - If you tested more than one fomite, which one grew more microbes? Why is that?

Depending on what objects you tested, you may have seen a difference in the amount of bacterial growth. Objects that are kept in moist and/or dark places or that come into frequent contact with food, dirt, vegetation or bodies of living creatures often contain more microbes than other objects such as walls, ceiling light fixtures, door frames, etc. that are generally dry.
