What Are The Stages Of A Bed Bug’s Life-Cycle?

Bed bugs start as eggs which are milky-white in color and about the size of a grain. A female bed bug is fertilized by a male bed bug after which the female will lay the eggs which will then take approximately 6 to 9 days to hatch. Female bed bugs lay somewhere between 1 and 5 eggs a day and can lay up to 500 eggs over their lifetime. The female bed bug lays these eggs inside of the cracks and crevices of your bed, furniture or walls. Adult females need a blood meal in order to lay her eggs. If these eggs are laid in a space in which temperatures are around 70 to 80 degrees

Fahrenheit, bed bugs can mature fully in as little as a month. Homes, dwellings, offices and public transportation tends to be kept at this temperature range creating the perfect incubator for bed bug nymphs.

Life-Stages Of The Bed Bug

While bed bugs can transition through the 5 necessary life-stages in as little as a month if the conditions are right, this process can be prolonged if the temperature under which the bed bugs reside or there isn’t an ample supply of blood on which to feed. Temperature also plays a role in how long a single bed bug may live. In cooler temperatures, a bed bug can survive up to a year. In temperature-controlled buildings, at 55 degrees Fahrenheit or more, a bed bug will live for between 2 to 6 months.
