Would bed bugs live on a dog? Q: Can my pet carry bed bugs? A: Bed bugs don’t live on pets or spend as much time on your pet as the more common pests (such as fleas, ticks, lice and mites), but they can bite your pets.
Do pets carry bed bugs? Animals can carry bed bugs as easily as any other pest; it just happens less often. Bed bugs are less likely to travel on a pet than they are on a human. If your pet has been treated with flea and tick neck drops, then they likely won’t get bed bugs on them at all.
Can bed bugs lay eggs on dogs? Bed bugs don’t lay eggs on their host, so rest assured that your pet is safe against nests in their fur. If you’re worried about bed bugs in your home, on your pet or elsewhere, give Ehrlich a call at 888-984-0186.
