HOW FAST DO BED BUGS REPRODUCE?

AFTER FEMALES MATE THEY LAY WHITE OVAL SHAPED EGGS IN HARD TO FIND HARBORAGES IN BEDS AND FURNITURE. AN INDIVIDUAL BED BUG WILL LAY APPROXIMATELY 200 TO 250 EGGS IN HER LIFETIME. WHEN THEY HATCH AROUND 6 TO 10 DAYS THE NYMPHS (TYPICALLY BIEGE AND DIFFICULT TO LOCATE) WILL FORAGE FOR BLOOD MEALS IMMEDIATELY, THEY LIVE AS LONG AS 7 TO 12 MONTHS AND WILL LIVE FOR A YEAR OR LONGER WITHOUT FEEDING. BED BUGS WILL BECOME ADULTS IN 7 WEEKS AND WILL BECOME EASIER TO LOCATE WHEN THEY ARE REDDISH BROWN IN COLOR.

HOW DO BED BUGS TRAVEL IN HOMES AND BUSINESSES?

BED BUGS MOVE VERY FAST AND WILL CRAWL SHORT DISTANCES INSIDE A POPULATED AREA AND SLOWLY MAKE THEIR WAY TO OTHER PARTS OF THE HOME OR BUSINESS, OTHER METHODS OF TRAVEL FOR BED BUGS ARE HITCHING A RIDE INSIDE PURSES, BACKPACKS, SUITCASES, CLOTHING, AND COATS. BED BUGS WILL HIDE IN NUMEROUS PLACES AROUND THE HOME OR BUSINESS LIKE BEHIND PICTURE FRAMES, FURNITURE, CURTAINS, WINDOW AND DOOR FRAMES, LOOSE WALLPAPER, BASEBOARDS, AND IN CARPET NEAR BASEBOARDS. BED BUGS ARE A VERY DIFFICULT PEST TO FIND AND ERADICATE. CALL THE PROFESSIONALS AT HI-TECH PEST CONTROL 248-569-8001.
