The Bed Bug Life Cycle A few bed bugs can become a large infestation quickly. One female bed bug may produce up to 500 offspring during its lifetime, and three generations can live per year. Imagine how many bed bugs you'd have in a year if just one reproductive pair finds its way into your home.
Life Cycle: Adults and all nymphal stages of Cimex spp. need to take blood meals from warm-blooded hosts, which are typically humans for C. lectularius and C. hemipterus , although other mammals and birds can be utilized in the absence of a human host.
A male lovebug copulates and will remain paired up until the female has been fully fertilized. Copulation takes place for 2-3 days before the female detaches, lays her eggs, and dies. Adult females have been recorded to live up to seven days, while adult males may live up to two to five days, but on average lovebugs live three to four days.
Stink bugs start out as eggs, progress through a nymph stage and then move on to adulthood. Together, these different growth phases form a stink bug's life cycle. Many other insects share a similar life cycle to the stink bug, including bed bugs, cockroaches, termites and lice.
Directed by John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton. With Kevin Spacey, Dave Foley, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Hayden Panettiere. A misfit ant, looking for "warriors" to save his colony from greedy grasshoppers, recruits a group of bugs that turn out to be an inept circus troupe.
The nymph stage of the bed bugs life cycle takes from five to six weeks. The last stage of the bed bug's life is the mature bed bug stage. At this point a bed bug will both feed on human blood as well as have the ability to reproduce.
