Bed bugs are probably the most unwelcomed guests in our home because of their speed of reproduction and the health harm they caused to us. Found almost anywhere besides home, such as favorite places we will hang out like movie theatres, airplanes, hotels and recreation clubs, perhaps one of the danger we all fear of bed bugs are their bites.
Covering yourself from head to toe with long sleeved clothing is probably your best bet against getting insect bite or bug bites from places you visit.
Perhaps, the most lingering question we have in mind is do bed bugs bite through clothes? But first, let’s hear of the top 3 most common misperceptions we have in preventing ourselves from getting bitten from bed bugs.
Here are reasons why we are not spared despite diligently covering ourselves up.
.Being the tiny “apple seed” size, bed bugs can crawl through tiny openings of the blankets, quilts and sleeves and pants of our pyjamas we cover with/
.Bugs could be nesting on your bed sheets and mattresses without being noticed, thus the chance of being exposed to them every time you lie in bed.
.Fabrics play a part too. Thin or mesh-like materials may just allow bed bugs to slip in through the materials and onto your skin.
While bed bugs have to be in direct contact with our skin in order to get bitten, they are not capable of biting through clothes due to the fact that their mouths aren’t long enough to suck blood through most materials.
