1. Bed Bugs Reproduce More Slowly Than Other Insects
You may have heard that bed bugs reproduce very rapidly, so you need to act quickly if you have any hope of exterminating them. But bed bugs actually reproduce slowly in comparison to other insects. A female bed bug only lays one egg per day, and that egg takes at least five weeks to become an adult bed bug. A female flea, by comparison, can produce 600 offspring in a month.
