PICTURES OF BED BUG EGGS
What do bed bug eggs look like?
Bed bug eggs are small (around 0.1 inches, 2.5mm) long and appear white or semi-transparent, similar to a grain of uncooked white rice. They will be sticky to the touch and usually clustered together. You can also find shed egg shells after the infant bed bugs have hatched, but as these are very small and can resemble general debris you should look for active bugs and eggs as well.
On average female adult bed bugs will lay 1-5 eggs per day. They can be laid on almost any surface but are typically found in cracks or rough surfaces, especially around your mattress seams. They hatch within about a week. Over her lifetime, a female bed bug can lay up to 500 eggs. This and the fact that bed bugs are good at hiding allows bed bug populations to spread and grow quickly.
You can quickly stop the eggs from hatching with a non-harmful heat treatment. Learn more.

DEAD BED BUG PICTURES
What do dead bed bugs look like?
After treatment dead bed bugs will appear shriveled and curled up, with their legs and sometimes their heads curled into the middle of their body. In heat treatment they will often cluster together into a pile, as seen in this picture taken in the aftermath of heat treatment using a ZappBug Room. If you’re treating with pesticides or other products the bed bugs can shed their skin in an attempt to prevent death.
