Bed bugs, the scourge of the rental industry, are small insects that feed exclusively on human blood. Long lived and easily spread, 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.
How Bed Bugs Spread. Not everyone is aware that bed bugs can be spread via humans: if a person goes to a hotel room that has bed bugs, and the bed bugs hide out on the person or on the person's
Eggs will hatch in five to 10 days' time, and the emergent nymphs will immediately begin looking for a blood meal. It takes around four or five weeks for a bed bug to reach maturity, going through five molts along the way.
Yes, bed bugs spread at a very fast rate into your room and living area. Bed Bugs Spread Rate As compared with other insects, bedbugs are regular to reproduce: each grownup feminine creates about one egg in a day; an ordinary housefly lays five hundred eggs over 3 to 4 days.
How fast do bed bugs spread from room to room once they get into your home depends mostly on if they can hitch lifts on objects that get moved about from room to room often. They must move fast enough in order to find enough food (your blood) without the benefit of long legs for hopping, like fleas, or wings.
Bed bugs have a lifespan of 6 to 12 months and can feed every ten days on average during this time. They can survive without a blood meal for a long time, and their rate of reproduction is very high thus spreading quickly through a house as they keep on searching for migration if they congest in a place.
