  • Bed bugs are primarily nocturnal parasites.
 
  • An adult female bed bug lays 1 to 5 eggs per day, up to 500 in her life time.
 
  • Eggs hatch in 7 to 10 days and reach adulthood in 1½ to 3 months.
 
  • Approximately 90% of their time is spent resting or hiding. The other 10% is spent feeding and laying eggs.
 
  • Bed bugs are master survivors and have been found to live over a year without feeding.
 
  • While feeding, the bite is painless and only takes approximately 5-15 minutes.
 
  • Bed bugs are transmitted from one place to another by "hitchhiking".
 
  • Bed bugs can go undetected for months before being seen.
 
  • Bed bugs prefer to hide in cracks and crevices.
 
  • Bed bugs are known to cause psychological and emotional stress to their victims.

  • Furniture (Dressers, nightstands, couches, computer desks & chairs, etc...)
 
  • Behind headboards
 
  • Behind paintings and frames
 
  • Behind walls & decorative trim

  • Books
 
  • Suitcases and bags
