Everything you need to know about pests
Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to find because they conceal themselves in small, dark crevices. Insects that should not be in your house, like ants, make their presence known by crawling about in plain sight. It is more difficult to identify bed bugs. They would rather remain hidden and will only emerge from their hiding places to feed on a host during the night.

Lifecycle of a Bed Bug
By gaining a better understanding of the lifecycle of bed bugs, you may have a better understanding of bed bugs and how to determine whether they are present in your house.
Eggs are the first stage of development for bed bugs, which then progress through a series of phases known as "instars" as the nymphs mature and lose their skin. Because the eggs are barely 1 mm in length and pearly white in color, it may be quite difficult to see them with the human eye. Nymphs, often known as immature bed bugs, are very small and have a transparent or whitish appearance. Bed bugs are regarded to have matured into adults when they have completed their fifth instar. Adults may survive for nearly a whole year, and females can deposit around five eggs each day.
Bed bugs begin to lay eggs as soon as they enter your house and seek refuge in tight, concealed spots like bed frames, baseboards, dresser drawers, behind hanging artwork, under curtains, and behind electrical switch plates, among other places. When contaminated things are carried inside of your house, they are able to obtain access to your property. Used goods, wicker furniture, backpacks, movie theaters, buses, and other public transportation options are all examples of this category. Bed bugs are unable to survive in the wild. In order to eat and develop, they require a live host that remains still for long periods of time (as while they are sleeping or watching a movie, for example).
If you detect any of the following in your house, you may be sure that you have an infestation of bed bugs:
