Bed bug biology and habits add up to a very tough pest problem. Both adults and immature nymphs come out at night for a blood meal. Adult bed bugs are oval, wingless, about 1/5″ long, and rusty red or mahogany. Female bed bugs lay 200-500 tiny white eggs in batches of 10-50 on rough surfaces such as wood or paper. Gluelike materials cover the eggs, which hatch in about 10 days. Bed bugs hide during the day in seams of mattresses and box springs, cracks of bed frames, under loose wallpaper, behind picture frames and inside furniture and upholstery. People are often not aware they have been bitten until afterwards. However, saliva injected during the feeding can later produce large swellings that itch and may become infected. Bed bugs leave fecal spots on sheets and at their hiding places.
