An individual bed bug can lay 200 to 250 eggs in her lifetime. The eggs hatch in about 6 to 10 days and the newly emerged bed bug nymphs seek a blood meal. Immature nymphs molt five times (they shed their outer exoskeleton in order to grow) before reaching adulthood.
Bed bugs will intake six times it's weight in human blood during a nighttime feeding. This feeding can take 3 to 10 minutes.
