Can bed bugs bite through clothes or crawl up long sleeves and pants to bite also will the cold kill them?

In brief: No yes and No

They usually strike the first skin they find, so ankles are common.
They are incredibly itchy. Only high heat (in clothing/bedclothing---not on your skin!) and certain pesticides can kill them. Consider an exterminator with experience in bed bugs.
