This happens during nymphic stage.

That is the reason why after treatment we ask customers to sleep in their bedroom so that all the bedbugs that have gone into hiding will go out and feed. This is the perfect opportunity for them to crawl into the treatment we have laid out in the bedframes and other surfaces. Thus, killing them in the process.


FACT 5. Bed bugs need to feed at least once before each molt.

Since Bedbugs have 5 nymphic stages, one bedbug needs to at least feed one's before molting. So if you have 50 bedbugs that hatched from their eggs, You and your household will be a ready meal for 50 bedbugs multiplied by 5 in the span of 2 weeks.
