    Curious, do bed bugs often bite peoples heads? LOL

    Not CAN they for I realize they can bite anywhere but do you hear of them biting the head of people often especially people like myself with long hair that has a lot of of it on her head and very thick, thereby there not being many "open" spaces on the head.

    Yes, I have seen people bitten on their head, face, neck, ears, etc.

    Of course, if the hair is thick it is difficult to see the bites. And, BBs may not bite in areas where access to a suitable feeding location may be blocked by the presence of dense hair.

    Hope this helps ! paul b.
