Adults are about 3/16 inch long, broadly oval and flat. Color brown to reddish brown. Female lays 1-5 eggs per day, about 1/32 inch long, being deposited individually in cracks or on rough surfaces and secured with a transparent cement for an average total of 200 eggs; maximum of 12 eggs per day, with 541 eggs for a life time.

It takes anywhere between 21 to 120 days (depending on temperature) to go from egg to adult.

They hide in cracks and crevices during the day and come out to feed at night. Typically, they can be found around mattress buttons and bedding, in box springs or their coverings, and in any crevice of a wooden bed frame. Other places to check are wall hangings, night stands, stuffed furniture, baseboards, floorboard cracks, behind loose wallpaper, light switches, door and window frames, etc.

In heavy infestations, bed bugs may be found in wall voids, attics, and other enclosed places. They will crawl considerable distances to obtain a blood meal. Each Bed Bug stage requires a bloodmeal.

The first sign of Bed Bug infestation is the appearance of small brownish dots on bed linens. These are fecal spots or droppings on the surface of linens from these bugs. There have been no reports of disease transmission. They gain access through used furniture and bedding, luggage, any mobile object, or through pipes shared by neighboring apartments or hotel rooms.

They can live for a year or more without eating. Bites are often undetected on most people when they are bitten. Welt-like swelling in a straight line may occur in some sensitive people.
