Their size is similar to an apple seed. The top area of their body has gold colored hair, antennae and cone like eyes. The bottom area of their own bodies is wrinkly just like crinkled paper. Bed bugs cannot fly however they can crawl extremely fast. They develop and multiply inside a temperature range of 70 degrees around 80 degrees. A little bedbug, is called a nymph, they are clear in color and changes into a red color after feeding. To achieve adulthood, a nymph bed bug should shed its skin about five times. A normal female can lay 5 to 7 eggs weekly and can produce up to five hundred eggs throughout its life expectancy of Twelve months to 18 months. The eggs will hatch out in just 6 to 17 days when they become known as nymphs. Bed Bug eggs are resistant to pesticides or herbicides. Bedbugs hide in bedding, carpets, blankets, garments, underneath wallpaper, under rags, between drape folds, behind wall decorations and behind wooden furnishings. They love to attack during the night and they will remain active until prior to daybreak. Bed bugs bite uncovered skin of a person in an infested bed and then leave reddish itchy dots.
