Entomology (Study of Bugs)/bedbugs

Question
If two people share a bed and bedbugs are present, both people would have bites, yes?  I cannot believe that in such a case only one would have bites.

Answer
Hi Maggie
 It could depend upon the number of hungry bedbugs but if two people are close together in a bedbug infestation the odds are that they will both be bitten. I suppose there may be some exceptions. Bedbugs like mosquitoes can be more attracted to some individuals then to others.
