Bed bugs hatch from eggs and undergo five instar stages before reaching into a mature adult. The nymph eggs are so tiny they are almost impossible to see with the naked eye.
These pests can happily survive in all different ranges of climates and temperature. They can transfer between hotels states and even countries through baggage. They prefer to live somewhere close to the main host, usually your bed. They live in tiny gaps in your bed frame and seams in your mattress and pillows and are usually not visible to the untrained eye.
Bed bugs mostly consume human blood. They prefer soft accessible skin on a human while sleeping. Once they bite it will cause swelling, the area will then form a red spot. Next comes swelling and itchiness.
