Bed bugs can live in a plastic bag for a much longer time than you can. If the bag is not sealed or air-tight or has any kind of rips, then the bed bugs can live out their normal life spans because they will find their way out of the bag. How long bed bugs live in plastic bags depends on if the bag is vacuum sealed or if the bag is placed in the freezer or subjected to extreme heat.
Bed bug infestations usually occur around or near the areas where people sleep. These areas include apartments, shelters, rooming houses, hotels, cruise ships, buses, trains, and dorm rooms. They hide during the day in places such as seams of mattresses, box springs, bed frames, headboards, dresser tables,
You must understand that bed bugs do not host on human or other mammalians, unlike fleas. Their hosts are cracks, holes, furniture, clothes or other staff which are near to their food sources. So, bed bugs do not need to host on human for surviving.
Bed bugs are a type of insect that feed on human blood, usually at night. Their bites can result in a number of health impacts including skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms. Bed bug bites may lead to skin changes ranging from invisible, to small areas of redness, to prominent blisters.
Where Bed Bugs Hide. When not feeding, bed bugs hide in a variety of places. Around the bed, they can be found near the piping, seams and tags of the mattress and box spring, and in cracks on the bed frame and headboard. If the room is heavily infested, you may find bed bugs: In the seams of chairs and couches, between cushions, in the folds of curtains.
The reality is (nearly all the time) bed bugs hide in and very near the location where they feed. That means places that you rest for long periods of time - namely your bed - and wherever you "lounge" when you're not sleeping.
