bedbugs in a spider webLocation:  Brighton, MA

Adaptability! Species do this in order to survive, from humans to insects. Research has found that female bedbugs wander away from original infestations in order to survive. Why? Once a female bedbug has been impregnated, they no longer need the male bedbug. They fertilize themselves through a process called parthenogenisis, mate once & pregnant for life. So why then do they leave the infested area AKA home? Well, to be quite blunt, to get away from the males!

You see, as it turns out, science has found that male bedbugs have insatiable sexual appetites. They will violently breed with female bedbugs until they kill them.  So the female bedbugs have adapted and realized once they are impregnated they simply get out of dodge to have their babies and live. What is such a problem and it explains why infestations spread is they start new infestations away from the original infestation. They continue moving away from males and starting new infestations.

The accompanying photo shows bedbugs in a spider web OUTSIDE an infested room. They were literally trying to leave so a spider set up shop for a feast!
Never underestimate the power of pests! They are one formidable foe!
