The first question you may have when you notice an infestation is, “Can bed bugs get in your private parts?” In a word, no. Unless you’re a bed bug expert, it’s impossible for bed bugs to get inside your private parts. Although they may be attracted to the smell of human blood, they can’t burrow through human skin. That’s one of the reasons why they’re unlikely to bite your nose or private parts.
Unlike many other types of bugs, bed bugs feed very slowly. They generally feed once every five days during warm weather. They need to feed to progress to a new life stage and fully develop. When the weather gets colder, the feeding rate may slow down even further. Also, unlike ticks, bed bugs do not burrow into your skin. Instead, they feed with a long, sharp, and flat probe called a proboscis.
If you have an infestation, you’ll have to take steps to avoid them from getting into your private parts. One of the first steps is to wear underpants. If you do, you’ll be less likely to be bitten by bed bugs. In addition to wearing underpants, it’s also a good idea to wear a pair of pants.
Using a pair of tight underwear can help protect yourself from bed bugs. This will help you maintain a temperature that bed bugs cannot survive in. This is because bed bugs can’t survive in warm environments, so they won’t get inside of your private parts unless they have easy access to the skin.
