Female bedbugs can lay from one to 5 eggs per day depending on the temperature and availability of a food source.The eggs which are deposited on rough surfaces or in crack and crevices are coated with a sticky substance so they adhere to the substrate. It takes about 10 days for eggs to hatch, and nymphs, also called instars, can immediately begin to feed. They have to have a blood meal in order to molt into the next stage. Bedbugs become adults after five
molt and are able to breed shortly thereafter. So, essentially it takes about 2 months for 1 bed bug to cause an infestation to get out of control. Call us at 508-713-8267 if you suspect bed bug bites.
