The Lifecycle of the Bed Bug

Since early detection is key when it comes to fighting bed bug infestation, it may help to know exactly what bed bugs look like, where to find them, and how to identify which stage of the lifecycle they are in.

A female bed bug will lay eggs 3 or more days after she has had a blood meal. She needs a blood meal to lay her eggs and can lay, on average, between 3 to 8 eggs a week, though they have the capacity to lay as many as 12 eggs per day. 

Bed Bug Larvae, or Nymphs

Nymphs, or bed bug larvae, are bed bugs that have not reached full adulthood (sexual maturity). They look much like adult bed bugs, only smaller and they are bright red in color. Bed bug nymphs need to feed to grow into the next stages of maturity. So, yes, bed bug babies do bite. Each time they do, they shed their current skins and will appear even redder than before, as it is filled with its blood meal. You may find these cast shells where larvae and adult bed bugs live in the cracks and crevices around your sleeping space. 

How Big Are Bed Bug Larvae?

Nymphs, or juvenile bed bugs, range in size from the size it is as an egg, which is about 2.5mm to the size of an adult bed bug, which is about 4.5mm. Bed bug nymphs look like tiny seeds, however, each time one feeds it grows about 0.5mm in size.
