One female can lay up to 500 eggs within her lifetime.
There have not been any proven links to bedbug bites and diseases. Most will suffer from itching and swelling like that of a mosquito bite. A few rare cases may experience an extreme allergic reaction with symptoms such as going into a state of shock, nausea, and even feelings of illness. Luckily these allergic reactions are not very common.
Research has said that bed bugs bite in a linear pattern of three bites so if you have three consecutive bites about your skin then you have been bitten by a bed bug. Some people even refer to these bites as "Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner". Bites from bed bugs are usually red in appearance and can be either flat or raised bumps.
Some bites might show up immediately where as others may not see signs up to nine days after being bitten. In some people the bites do not show up at all.
Bed bugs can travel on your shoes or clothing. They tend not to travel directly on your skin, they prefer to feed off of you and after feeding they go back into hiding.
Your clothing, shoes and bags or briefcases are prefect traveling centers for bed bugs. Any seam in your shirt, pants or socks are great hiding and traveling spots for bed bugs.
