Bed bugs are nocturnal, red-brown insects that feed on human blood, but also on warm blood from pets – animals or birds.
These insects have no wings; in time, through their evolution, they developed a flattened body, which allows them to hide in places such as: cracks in the bed frame, cracks in the walls, carpets, upholstered furniture, etc.
Bedbugs’ season is the summer. In a period when the temperature reaches 17 degrees Celsius, these insects need about 4 months to fully develop (from egg to adult) and start breeding. However, if the temperature reaches 27 degrees Celsius, bedbugs can become adults in just a month and a half.

The life of a bedbug begins as an egg, which looks like a grain of wheat, with a milky white or cream color. The female lays 1-5 eggs each day and may lay up to 500 eggs in a lifetime. Eggs are laid individually or in small groups. An egg is about 1 mm long, being comparable (in both size and appearance!) to two grains of salt. Within two weeks, the egg hatches and the bedbug immediately begins to feed. Before reaching maturity, bedbugs must feed several times a week.
