Can beg bugs bite thought clothes?(3 posts)
Hi I heard serveral people here say, bed bugs can bite through clothes. I was under the impression they like naked skin and they will find the exposed skin and bite you there instead. Say like your face and neck is the only thing exposed, they will bite there.
I had bites on my shoulders. But I think I was wearing a loose night shirt, it rode up, and the and bugs crawled up there or through the wide arm hole.
I think I'm rid of adults, my plan for nymph bite inspection is to give them a handy place where I can check easily. That would be my forearms.
I think nymph bites for me are dime size bright pink spots, but not itchy.
I've been bitten through clothes. Last winter I was all bundled up in layers, and I was still bitten. So it's not that my clothing rode up, it's that they can burrow in your stuff.
I have not heard anyone say they SAW one bite through clothing. I suspect a lot of people say they bite through clothes but mean they were bitten while wearing clothes (probably by bed bugs that crawled under the clothing as BBs mentions).
