can bed bugs live on you and the clothes you are wearing? can they live on objects? (makeup, cell phone charger)

NO: They will nest 2 to 3 feet from you as you sleep. The nest is likely to be surrounded by black dots (feces) and white dots (eggs). They prefer cracks and joints in wood, less likely to nest in the mattress.
