Bed Bug Life Cycle

Bed bugs go through six stages in their life cycle, five immature and one adult. They shed their skins multiple times before they reach adulthood. These skins look much like empty shells, similar to that of a snake. Each bed bug has to molt six times before it becomes an adult. If you have an infestation of bed bugs these will be noticeable for only a short time because as with human skin, it will become household dust. When a bed bug has reached adulthood they will be dark brown to black in colour and about the size of a small screw head. They will live up to a year in the right conditions, but have been known to live for just five months.
