The Life Cycle of a Bed Bug

There are various stages in the life cycle of a bed bug

Bed bugs are prolific breeders and are known for their ability to reproduce quickly

During mating, the male bed bug pierces the female’s abdomen with his reproductive organ and inserts sperm into her body. The sperm then fertilises the eggs that the female lays.

Female bed bugs lay their eggs in cracks and crevices close to their hiding places and can typically lay up to 5 eggs per day. Appearance wise bed bug eggs are small, oval-shaped, and white, and they are approximately 1mm in length, and can be compare to a grain of rice. To ensure the eggs stay in place until they hatch, the female bed bug will glue the eggs to the surface where they are laid.

bed bug lifecycle

The eggs hatch in 6-10 days and release young bed bugs also known as nymphs. The nymphs will malt several times, shedding their exoskeletons as they grow, before reaching adulthood, and you will often see the shed skins in images of bed bugs. Bed bugs will reach adulthood between from 5 weeks to 4 months depending on certain factors such as the availability of food and the temperature of its habitat.
