Bed Bug Eggs

Bed bug eggs can be laid in places where the adult bed bug hides during periods that they are not feeding. As they feed mostly when the host is asleep their hiding places are anywhere dark during daylight hours. The eggs hatch in 7 to 14 days depending on what environment and temperature they are in. Bed bug eggs are elongated and up 1/32 inch in length. The female bed bug on average lays between 3 to 5 eggs per day. These eggs when layed, adhere to the surface they are laid on. In the photo above you can see a small number of adult bed bugs and a significant number of eggs. The eggs as you will see from the photo look very similar to very small grains of rice. Bed bugs are white, almost transparent in appearance before they start to feed, after which they start becoming brown in appearance. The female adult bed bugs lay their eggs either one by one or in clusters which over time can add up to hundreds of eggs. She then uses a sticky substance to glue her eggs to a rough surface. These surfaces could be made of wood, fabrics, it could be inside mattresses and bed bases or other surfaces like behind wallpaper and in cracks and crevices where the bed bugs tend to hide.
