Bed bugs nymphs go through five molts, taking a blood meal between each one. This stage can last from several weeks under favorable conditions up to as long as a year when hosts are unavailable and temperatures are low.
Bed bugs do have to feed in order to complete their molting cycles to become an adult bed bug. They can not lay eggs until they are in the adult bed bug stage.
