Bed Bug Laying An Egg!…

It’s not very often that you catch a female bed bug actually laying an egg physically in front of you! The image in this post just so happens to be one of those times that our bed bug specialist inspecting a home comes across a female bed bug in the middle of laying an egg.

How do the eggs stay in place?…

The female bed bug will apply a cement along with the egg that will permanently stick the egg to the object or structure the egg has been laid on. The image below gives a good view of what bed bug eggs and their excrement looks like.

Where are bed bug eggs usually laid?…

Bed bug eggs in homes are usually laid in areas that are close to you when you are not paying attention or unable to pay attention. Areas like this are usually the living room where we watch tv or play on our phones. Another area that is common is the the bedroom you sleep in. normally lay eggs in their hiding places which will grow with feces, shed skins, eggs and other female bed bugs that have hatched themselves from those eggs, grown up and started laying their own eggs. It literally becomes a pile of crusty poop, eggs, shed skins and bed bugs as you can see below in the image.

Bed bug nest or hiding place. Notice how they lay eggs on top of each other, as well as shed skins, excrement and bed bugs of all ages themselves. Any bed bug nest will continue to grow in width and denseness until it naturally is over run with to many bed bugs and they will start to spread to other areas. Spreading can also be caused by anyone spraying repellent chemicals.

How often do bed bugs mate?…

A bed bug female is only required to mate once in her life to be able to lay eggs for the rest of her life. That does not mean that they only mate once, in fact bed bugs mate crazy just like rabbits do. In fact they are so into mating that males will mistakenly mate with other males.

How many eggs can a female bed bug lay in a day?…

Bed bug females can lay about 1-5 eggs a day in 68 degree temperatures but it’s at 86 degrees that they are truly happy and shine laying a whopping 6-10 eggs a day possibly. Of course there’s all kinds of variables that can change the numbers but these are actual true factual numbers gathered by our specialists over years of research. Most bed bug females will lay about 2-3 eggs a day at 70 degrees normally. This may not seem like much but it only takes a bed bug around 7 weeks to age to adult and with 2-3 eggs a day if your keeping the temp around 70 degrees, those numbers start to jump in numbers quickly once eggs have hatched and before you know it the infestation has spread throughout your home.
