“How long do bed bug bites last?” is a question I’ve been asked quite a bit. This article answers this question. Before you rush out and purchase any bed bug control products, you should understand that there is no “cure” for bed bugs. In fact, the only known treatment is to kill the eggs that infest your home. So what is the average time that bed bugs typically take to die? Unfortunately, there is no one answer to this question. There are however, various ways to “calculate” this time frame.
Typically, bed bugs feed at night when people are sleeping. In the wild, bed bugs would not be able to complete their adult life cycle in a short amount of time as their larvae are dependent on human blood, and therefore; they need to feed on humans.
The time it takes for bed bugs to complete the entire life cycle will be affected by their temperature, activity level, nutrition, and stress levels. For example, if a person is sleeping in the room with the bed bug infestation, the infestation could be at its peak. In this case, the bed bug’s larvae and eggs could complete their lives in as little as 24 hours.
However, if the infestation has been going on for months or even years, it can take a couple of weeks to a couple of months before the bed bug’s adult stage begins. So if a person is in the middle of a devastating fire, fire fighters and agencies cannot get to the area until the following day, this could mean weeks, or even months before the infestation is fully eliminated.

If you have used one of the many effective products on the market, it might be helpful to keep in mind that it will take several weeks to see results. Also, the product you used may not work as well with bed bugs that have traveled to your home. So for many people, using the product is the best way to combat infestations that have gone on for a while.
Now that you know how long bed bug bites last, you can better determine the best time to use a product. And it is for this reason that I have developed a method to help you find the best time to spray the area and kill the eggs.
It’s called the “two-week rule” and can be easily done by applying the product and letting it stand for two weeks. Once it has completely dried up, you should be able to see if you see any signs of the bed bug.
Here’s the problem with using a product to treat the bed bug problem. Not all products work with bed bugs that have moved to your home. You will still need to take the proper precautions to ensure that these infestations do not come back.
Many people have now realized that not every treatment can work, or that there are chemicals that are just not safe for people to use. So it’s important to avoid the chemicals and look into other solutions before relying on chemical treatments.
