Where Do Bed Bugs Lay Eggs?

First, some good news about bed bug eggs. While some insects lay their eggs in nests, bed bugs do not. Then the bad news: bed bugs lay their eggs nearest their next meal which means they will lay their eggs in the bed or any furniture that is close to the bed. Bed bug eggs are sticky, which means they can easily adhere to just about anywhere that doesn’t experience much disturbance. 

What Do Bed Bug Eggs Look Like?

Bed bug eggs look much like the bugs of other insects of a similar size. Bed bug eggs are very small and white or pearl-white in color. They are barrel shaped and about the size of a grain of uncooked white rice. 

Bed bug eggs are typically found at the spot of the infestation where you will most likely find adult bed bugs as well. Eggs are typically clustered very close to each other and you may also find discarded bed bug eggshells in the same spot. This is because bed bugs don’t hatch at the same time.

What Should I Do If I Find Bed Bug Eggs?

Because bed bug eggs are really very small, you are much more likely to find other signs of bed bugs first, like cast skins of bed bugs who have moulted into a larger stage of nymph. These cast skins look like empty bed-bug shells and are in the shape of bed bugs, though they will be a similar color to bed bug eggs. 

Another clear sign that you might have a bed bug infestation is spotting tiny, but visible, reddish or dark brown spots or smears on your bedding and mattress. These spots are typically digested blood that bed bugs leave behind—essentially bed bug fecal matter.
