How Long Bed Bugs Live



Unfortunately for the human population, the bed bug is likely to make it through its nymph period and into adulthood.


One reason for this is as simple as the fact that they can live several months without eating any food at all. While they like to feed every five to ten days, they can survive several months without any food whatsoever.

Once they reach their adulthood, the female bed bug will begin to reproduce.

Once they reach their adult life, the bed bug is likely to live between a year to a year and a half. This is dependant upon on how much food they receIve.

Finally, the bed bug can produce eggs at least three times per year. More often is also common.

When you factor these things together, you can see just how large an infestation can be when it has just occurred only a few months before.
