The Life-Cycle of Bed Bugs
Bedbugs can hatch and grow to reproductive adults in as little as 21 days.
After hatching, bed bugs mature through five nymphal stages. Each nymph must feed on blood to mature to the next stage. While bedbugs can feed on other animals, they much prefer humans as their host.
After hatching, bedbugs can inhabit not only beds but also virtually any crack or crevice in any room. They are especially adept at hiding in the floor under wood moldings at the unseen edges of carpet.
Beg bugs travel in luggage, clothes, laptop computers, briefcases, virtually anything they can crawl into and hide. It is almost impossible to stay in an infested hotel room and not carry adult bed bugs or nymphs home with you.
