Adult Bed Bug Life Span.
The most recent studies indicate that a well-fed adult bed bug held at room temperature (>70° F), will live between 99 and 300 days in the laboratory. Unfortunately, we do not know exactly how long a bed bug might live in someone’s home or apartment. No doubt it will be at least several
months. However, conditions are usually more challenging for the bed bugs living in human dwellings than they are in the laboratory (finding food, fluctuations in temperature and
humidity, the presence of insecticides, avoiding being crushed, etc.) and these conditions will have a negative impact on bed bug survival. A recent laboratory study has shown that starvation has a negative impact on bed bug survival. This modern study European studies conducted in the 1930s and 40s, when it was determined that bed bugs could survive periods of starvation lasting more than one year. While this may have been true for individual bed bugs in the UK living at very low temperatures (< 40° F; because of no central heating); modern bed bugs collected from homes in the United States do not live that long. On average starved bedbugs (at any life stage) held at room temperature will die within 70 days. Most likely these bed bugs are dying of dehydration, rather than starving to death. Because bed bugs have no source of hydration other than their blood meal, dehydration is the greatest natural threat to their survival while living in the indoor environment. In fact, one of the reasons that bed bugs pack themselves so tightly into small cracks and crevices is so that they can maintain a microhabitat of favorable temperature and humidity, thus increasing their ability to survive periods of starvation.

Search Google Bed Bugs+ Subdued light. Insects having negative phototaxis show an identical reaction, when they are subjected to a rapid increase of light. The bedbug is, as we know, energetically photophobic; it hides in the darkest cracks and leaves only during the night. In the daytime, says Bohn, if an accident has brought it from the shade into the light, it immediately executes a rotation of 180 degrees, which brings it into the shadow. On a sheet of paper, it walks away from the luminous rays and turns about when one holds a candle toward it.It is very difficult, adds Bohn, to make a bedbug which is on a black paper pass over upon a piece of white paper. Anytime a Bed Bug is startled by a handheld candle or light of course it's going to run and hide. A Bed Bug chooses a white paper over other colors when not disturbed. Negative phototaxis testing is flawed. Bed Bugs have Positive Phototaxis. U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Bed bugs, a 1937 Leaflet No. 146, Great 8 pages, stating, Bedbugs are normally nocturnal. When the lights are out they emerge from their daytime hiding places and seek to feed upon their host. Sometimes, when very hungry, they will feed during the daytime in subdued light. Their normally nocturnal habit is modified necessarily when they infest furniture in restrooms in stores, theater seats, desks in offices, and similar situations that are not frequented by man throughout the night.

Massive bed bug infestation in 224 & 226 W 116th, adjoining buildings (same entryway) run by Springhouse Partners Management.

Apparently, in the summer of 2013, there was an issue in my apartment that was treated. (My current roommates lived here at this time, I did not.) Nothing reappeared until October 2014, my roommate experienced a few bites. An exterminator came and didn't find an infestation, surmised bugs were "visiting" from an adjoining unit. Roommate sealed her room with


January 2015, I saw one or two in my room. Saw a few more in February of 2015, which is when I insisted we get treated. I bagged everything, washed/heat treated all of my belongings, and our apartment received its three treatments through February and early March of 2015. In March several more tenants from both 224 & 226 started leaving notes on doors informing the building of their own bed bug issues.

We had to threaten calling 311 before Springhouse Management bothered to do anything about it. Aside from bed bugs, these buildings are also infested with roaches and mice. Nothing is done. FINALLY, after multiple reports, Springhouse sent exterminators to evaluate and treat any apartment that requested it and had a problem. (Meaning that if a neighbor with an infestation did not request an evaluation and treatment, the problem remains.)

After covering our apartment in DE and being treated, we purchased a caulking gun and sealed the wall that adjoins with another unit. After all of this, Springhouse had the audacity to attempt a major price jump in our rent when our new lease arrived in the mail. Needless to say, we are hightailing it out of here.
