Yes, bed bugs can bite through clothes. In the picture below you will see a person with an actual bed bug on their shirt!

It is important to note that it doesn’t matter how thick your clothes are- they can still bite through clothing and get to the skin.

In this blog post, we will answer some questions about whether or not bed bugs can actually bite through clothing.

For example:

1) Can Bed Bugs Bite Through Clothes?

2) How Thick Does Clothing Have To Be To Prevent Bed Bugs From Biting Through?

3) Will I Still Get Bed Bug Bites If The Bug Is On My Clothing Instead Of My Body?

Bed bugs usually do not go much past 0.25 inches of fabric thickness when trying to find a place to feed on; however this does vary depending on the type of fabric being worn as well as the location where feeding occurs (e.g., whether or not there is access via hair).
