Bed Bugs Mating

The bed bugs mating behaviour is known as traumatic insemination. Traumatic insemination is a mating practice where the male pierces the female bed bugs abdomen with his hypodermic genitalia and injects their sperm through the wound into her abdominal cavity. The male bug penetrates the females body with a modified copulatory organ called a paramere and injects sperm into her body. The sperm migrates through the hemocoel to the female’s primary reproductive tract. Females produce small whitish eggs which she cements to surfaces that are hidden. A female bed bug can lay up to 5 eggs a day and more than 500 during her lifetime.
