Yes! Bed bugs are best known for their bites. Bed bugs feed on people at night as they sleep. While their bites aren’t usually painful in the moment, they often lead to red, itchy bites.
Here are a few things you should know about bed bug bites:
Bites will appear on any skin left exposed overnight.
Bites are commonly laid out in lines or zigzag patterns.
Some people are asymptomatic while others can get welts and rashes.
When Do Bed Bugs Bite Us?
Bed bugs will be active whenever their victims tend to rest. This means that they usually feed overnight when people sleep. Their bites will usually be painless in the moment, so you won’t wake up to them. The bed bug will feed until it is full, taking about 10 minutes, then crawl back to its hiding place.
Bed bugs are most often nocturnal and most active between 2 and 5 a.m. However, they will adjust their schedule to be active whenever their host consistently rests.

Where Do Bed Bugs Bite Us?
Bed bugs will bite any skin left exposed overnight. This could be your hands, feet, arms, legs, neck, or more. Their bites are usually aligned in zigzag patterns.
Bed bugs will even bite your face if they get the chance! Although this happens sometimes, you don’t have to be worried about bed bugs crawling into your nose, mouth, or ears, which people often tell us that they are concerned about, understandably. Bed bugs are only interested in the surface of your skin and will retreat as soon as they are done feeding.
How Dangerous Are Bed Bug Bites?
Some people that have bed bug bites can’t even tell, due to being asymptomatic. However, bed bug bites leave most people with itchy, red marks. While bed bugs do not pass on diseases through their bites, it’s important to treat your bites well so that they heal quickly and properly.
