Bedbugs are nocturnal insects that feed on blood. Females deposit small whitish eggs with a glue like material in cracks and crevices where they hide. A female will lay 1 – 5 eggs daily and can produce 200-500 in her lifetime. The eggs take approx. 1 week to hatch. Bites are usually in rows. Mattresses and especially box springs get infested. It is suggested that special covers be purchased to prevent them from being infested. Fecal matter may be noticed in harboring areas, they look like little black specks.
