Nymph Stage Of Bed Bugs
First Stage Larva Size - Nymph Phase During the first stage of the larva, the bed bug grows in size a little bit and reaches a length of about 1.5mm. In this phase, the bed bug isn't sexually mature yet and the nymph needs to complete a moulting stage that may happen only after the first blood meal.
Baby Bed Bugs (Nymphs) The first thing a newly hatched baby bed bug does is search for a blood meal. Baby bed bugs (technically called "nymphs") go through 5 stages of development instars. So a 1st instar nymph is a "newborn" and a 5th instar nymph is a "bedbug teen", so to speak.
The bed bug life cycle includes bed bug eggs, five larvae, or nymph, stages. At each stage, the bed bug has one blood meal, which helps it to grow, shed its skin, and metamorphose into the next stage. After five molts, the bed bug is considered to have reached maturity.
The life cycle of a bed bug begins with an egg. After mating female bed bugs lay milky white, oval eggs into cracks and crevices which looks like a grain of rice and is about 1mm in size. It is milky white in color due to lack of blood. Follow the chart of bed bug lifespan below that describes bed bug stages. Female Bed Bug
The Life Cycle Egg: Bed bugs start their lives in eggs, which have a milky white color to them. 1st Stage Nymph: There are five stages of growth that nymphs go through. 2nd Stage Nymph: Once a bed bug has gone through its first molt, it will become a 2nd stage nymph, 3rd Stage Nymph: After
Nymphs (young bed bugs) are semi-translucent. When they feed they fill with blood, making their belly a dark brown and sometimes causing a spotted pattern where the blood is visible inside their abdomen. Adult bed bugs will be either a light brown with a flat, oval belly if unfed or a deep brown/red color with an engorged belly if they have fed.
