These pesky bugs can leave bite marks all over your body and be nearly impossible to get rid of once they have got comfortable! While bed bugs typically live in your bed, shoes, and other dark places they can live and travel in your clothing.
Do bed bugs live/bite in clothing? I think I have a bed bug infestation, but I can't find any evidence for the type of bug other than bites (i.e. no bugs upon inspection, no spotting, etc.) The thing is, whatever it is that's biting me is living in my clothing and biting me during the day.
If you have bed bugs on your clothes and want to isolate them, or just want to suffocate the little critters, bagging them up may seem like the ideal solution. Let's take a look at some of the factors that can decide just how long they're able to live within a sealed bag.
5 Places Bed Bugs Do NOT Hide (usually) If you do find them in these places, you may have a very advanced infestation on your hands. (In that case, jump on over to the Bed Bug Pest Control section, because you need to take action as soon as possible.) Just don't do anything until you at least read the bed bug control 'no-no's
So where do bed bugs live? Bed Bugs like to hide in small cracks and crevices close to a human environment. They can be found behind baseboards, wallpaper, upholstery, and in furniture crevices. Bed bugs are also known to survive in temporary or alternative habitats, such as backpacks and under the seats in cars, busses and trains.
How Long Will Bed Bugs Live On Clothes? In addition to disliking body heat, bed bugs also are not well-equipped to crawl through your hair. If you do find bugs crawling on your body or in your hair, then you probably have something else, like ticks, lice, or fleas. Any of these can also be found on clothing you are wearing.
