Bed Bugs Appearance and Life Cycle
Bed bugs are considered as pests as they cause skin irritations in their hosts. Center for disease control and prevention and environmental protection agency consider bed bug a pest affecting public health even though they do not transmit diseases. Hence it is important to give more importance to prevent and control bed bug infestations. Knowing the life cycle of the bedbug is necessary to control or prevent them in an effective way.
The life cycle of bed bugs
The life cycle of bed bugs goes through five nymphs or immature stage and finally the sexually mature adult stage. The nymph shed their skin as they grow in size through the process called Ecdysis.
To become the fertile adult, the nymphs should molt six times. Each nymph stage requires at least one meal of blood to trigger molting of the exoskeleton. Depending on the environmental temperature and food availability, each nymph stage will last for about one week. The completion of life cycle requires less than two months.
When adequate food is available, a fertilized female can lay 3 to 4 eggs daily until the end of its life. Under warm climatic conditions, the lifespan of the bugs is about nine months. A single fertilized female can cause an infestation within few weeks. They can complete three generations within one year.
Bedbugs show sexual dimorphism. The female bugs are generally larger than males. The males have narrow or pointed abdomen while female bugs have broader and rounded abdomen. The bed bug eggs are tiny like the pinhead and have pearl white color. If the eggs are more than five days old, they will develop an eyespot.
The stages of life cycle include:
- Eggs about 1mm in size
- 1st stage nymphs which are 1.5 mm in size
- 2nd stage nymphs which are 2mm in size
- 3rd stage nymphs which are 2.5mm in size
- 4th stage nymph which is 3mm in size
- 5th stage nymph which is 4.5 mm in size
- Adult female and adult male
The oval-shaped eggs hatch within 6 to 10 days. The newly emerged nymphs can live without feeding for days or even months.
The nymphs are similar to adults in appearance and have a smaller size. Nymphs are not sexually mature. The young nymphs are yellowish white in color. In a reproducing population of bed bugs, nymphs of all ages can be found.
