Question by Wadia B:
Can you catch bed bugs from person to person?
I dont want to catch bed bugs! I was at a place where i heard about 5 people say they have bed bug so i was wondering if i could catch them just by sitting next to them.

They can travel in clothing but it’s unlikely. You’re more likely to get them on you from sitting on a couch or bed at a place that has them. Bed bugs usually just stay hidden and only come out to feed during the night, they don’t stay on people’s bodies but there is a chance they could get on your clothes.
If you’re worried, you can wash your clothing and bedding on hot. Good luck, they are a real pain to deal with.
