Bed bugs secretive lifestyle makes detection difficult. Relatively few bed bugs start an infestation. In fact, if a male bed bug is the only hitchhiker, no infestation will develop. Only female bed bugs are able to lay eggs. A mated female can lay around 3 eggs a day if feeding is available, laying more than 300 eggs in her lifetime. Small white eggs are cemented to discrete surfaces, near a host, and hatch in about 10 days.
From Overseas. Bed bugs have increased in America over the last few years due to international travels, importation of goods, and the fact that pest control measures no longer include the use of chemicals from the past that were effective but were outlawed due to their harmful effects on the environment . They have also developed resistance to many chemicals readily available to the public.
Very simple. Human blood. At first very few insects are present, feeding intermittently on the host and may not be noticed, but after some time, hundreds of eggs can be laid within 10 days, and within a month there will be a dangerous infestation.
