Cimex lectularius probably received its name of “Bed Bug” because they are commonly found where humans sleep. However they can also be found on buses and trains, in theaters, restaurant booths, locker rooms, and even in office spaces. They often seeks refuge during the daylight, and usually feed at night, most often between 1AM and 5AM, though not limited to those times. They can hide in many places within living spaces in cracks and crevices such as headboards, picture frames, mattress buttons, box springs, pillows, clock radios and electronics, and the crevices of a wooden frame that could have a slight gap.
Bed Bugs were not known as migratory insects in the past, but have adapted and now freely travel from room to room and apartment to apartment with the potential to infest entire buildings in a short period of time. We have compiled a list of facts to better understand the nature of these pests.
Bed bugs (females) deposit three to eight eggs at a time. A total of 300-500 eggs can be produced by a single bug.
Their eggs are 1/25? long and curved. They are often deposited in clusters and attached to cracks, crevices or rough surfaces near adult harborages with a sticky epoxy-like substance.
Eggs typically hatch in a week to 12 days. The freshly hatched nymph is beige-colored before feeding, and then turns a redish color after getting a blood meal.
