Bed Bug Behavior

Bed Bug Behavior

    • Bed bugs are active at night and hide during the day. After mating, females lay white, oval eggs (1/16-inch long) into cracks and crevices. An individual bed bug can lay 200-250 eggs in her lifetime.
    • The eggs hatch in about 6-10 days and the newly emerged bed bug nymphs seek a blood meal. Immature nymphs molt five times (i.e., they shed their outer exoskeleton in order to grow) before reaching adulthood.
    • They need to feed at least once before each molt, although they could feed as often as once a day.
    • There may be three or more generations per year. All ages are found in a reproducing population. Immature bed bugs may live for several months without feeding while adults may survive as long as one year without a meal.
    • Under normal circumstances, adult bed bugs will live for about ten to eleven months.
