Adult female bed bugs normally lay one, two or more eggs daily at specific places. The potential of a female bed bug during its entire life time can be up to hundreds. The bed bugs eggs are very tiny and small in size, almost equal to size of a dust spec. It is very hard to see bed bugs eggs without magnification. Sometimes these eggs might stick to the surface where they are laid due to their sticky nature. In normal room temperature, it takes around a week for bed bugs eggs to hatch. The nymphs that newly emerge from eggs are not bigger than a pinhead and they are straw-colored. When nymphs start to grow, they molt and shed their skin five time before they are able to reach the maturity stage.
Among the stage of each successive molt, a blood meal is required. Blood is also needed by the females in order to lay the eggs periodically. The complete life cycle of bed bugs, from egg to a mature adults takes almost a month under ideal temperature (70-80 Degree Fahrenheit) and enough supply of blood. Bedbugs are capable of producing many generations per year. The development is prolonged case of cool weather and limited access to the host. The average life span of bed bugs is about 10 months under sufficient circumstances.
One element which is to be considered in case of bed bugs control is that bed bugs are resilient. Unlike most of the other insects, bed bugs can survive without food for months. In cooler temperature, they can survive much longer without supply of blood meal. At 55 Degree Fahrenheit or less, bed bugs can survive up to a year without a blood meal. In warmer or temperature controlled buildings, bed bugs can survive without feeding up to 4 months. Therefore, if the plan is to leave the home to for some time in anticipation that bed bugs would die due to starvation, then this might not be helpful for bed bugs control. Bed bugs have this ability to disperse to nearby units or limit their activity as well.
Most of the time, bed bugs are active during night. In the day time, they can be found hiding near the sleeping places of the residents. Normally, they remain closer to the places from where they can get food but sometimes they might crawl to bit longer distances in search of blood meal. The primary areas where they tend to hide are sofas, beds and all other places where people sleep or take rest. When infestations are allowed to persist, bed bugs can disperse somewhere else which can make beg bugs treatment much more difficult.
