Where Do Bed Bugs Live?
Out of sight these biting insects are harboring your in your bed ready to feed. Once you settle down for the night and stop moving about they wait until they can feel the warmth of your body heat and come out to eat. Throughout their life cycle blood is required to live on and for the females to produce eggs. The Bed Bug will pierce your skin using its needle like mouthpiece and draw enough blood in a few minutes to increase their body weight by five times. The Adult female Bed Bug will lay her eggs in the cracks and crevices of the bed and furniture. The eggs have to be put out of harms way but close enough to be about to find a food source once they hatch.
