Adult femail bedbugs leave eggs most commonly on the mattress, inside a box spring, behind peeling wallpaper, behind walls and baseboards, near the edges of rugs, and in the closets.
Bed bugs will lay their eggs anywhere they can. Anywhere bed bugs are dwelling and hiding they will also lay their eggs. They do not have a specific place they prefer to lay eggs. Bed bug eggs are hard to see and identify because they are about the size of the tip of a pen point and are clear to milkly in color.
They are extremely hard to see with the naked eye. However, if you use a flashlight and inspect your mattress closely, you may be able to see small mikly specs in the folds of your mattress. These are most likely bed bug eggs.
Our AllStop Dead Bed Bug Contact Killing Spray not only kills adult and adolescent bed bugs on contact it also kills their eggs. This is one reason our Bed Bug Contact Killing Spray is the ultimate solution to a bed bug infestation. Traditional pesticides suchs as foggers and bombings do not kill the bed bug eggs. This leaves the infestation to start its cycle all over again once the eggs hatch.
Once bed bugs hatch from their eggs they are not much bigger in size than the egg itself. They remain about the size of the tip of a pen point and remain the mikly white to clear color till after their first blood meal. If you actually see bed bugs crawling around your home this is a sign of a severe infestation, as bed bugs are not usually seen in homes because of their nocturnal and skitish nature.
It is just as important to kill the eggs as it is to kill the already hatched live bed bugs. Our non-toxic safe formulas are effective in killing eggs and live bed bugs alike.
