Bed bugs are very famous, usually for their bad qualities or actions. As most people know they are very capable of living in the most extreme conditions.

When I dealt with bed bugs, the things I saw most often were dead bed bugs and eggs.

My friends used to ask me where I get the most bed bugs. And my answer was “I always found them near me”.

Most often, bed bugs live near humans, but they cannot live on humans. As a result, bed bugs cannot lay eggs even in the hair. Plus, they don’t like hairy places like your head.

Bed bugs usually lay their eggs in places where no one can disturb them. These soft and rice-like eggs are very valuable to these insects.

When a female bed bug has finished her mating process with other male insects. She tries to find new places that are closer to a host.

Because when the eggs break, it gives rise to small white-colored bed bugs which are also called bed bug nymphs. These nymphs need food (blood) for their new organs to function. That’s why the nearest place is the best.

However, insects always surprise us when it comes to choosing an infection site, but they will never choose your hair to lay eggs.

Your curtains are one of the more overlooked places when it comes to inspecting bed bugs. But as we have told in one of our blogs that bed bugs can live on your curtains.

Since most curtains are made of fabric, this would be an ideal place for these bed bugs to lay their eggs.

Bed Frames

There’s a reason bed bugs are called “bed” “bugs.” Typically, bed bugs are most likely to be found in your bed frame.

Because that’s how they can get close to you. Bed bugs lay their eggs in corners, footrests, and even inside bed frames.


Yes, these creepy invisible bed bugs can even sneak inside your pillow to bite you at night. What’s more, bed bugs are very attractive for pillows. They can lay eggs on the inside of pillows, around sewing ends and piping.

These insects can easily see you at night and come out of the pillow and suck blood from your skin.

You may think that bed bugs have laid eggs on your skin or hair. But the truth is they are living inside your pillow and maybe coming out of them to suck your blood.


If your home is severely infested with these blood-sucking creatures, you may find them inside your electronics such as switchboards or keyboards.

In my case, I noticed a lot of bed bugs and their eggs at the bottom of my keyboard.


Well, bed bugs can lay eggs in curtains, clothing, and even electronics. But bed bugs cannot and will not lay eggs on your skin and hair. If you think that these insects and their eggs are attached to your skin, then it is completely wrong.

There might be something else. In my case, the bed bugs were living inside my leather belt. After spending so many months with these insects, I accidentally found them in a small gap in my stomach.
