There are 7 stages of bed bugs from egg to adult. Eggs will hatch 5 to 10 days after being laid. Each stage requires a blood meal to molt to the next. So expect 5 to 10 days for each stage with a minimum of 30 days to get to adult. One female will lay 200 to 500 eggs in 1 year, 7 to 14 eggs a day. She only needs to feed every 14 days to continue breeding. The expected life of a bed bug is 4 months with a steady source of food, but if food is rare they can live up to 18 months by filling their stomach with a bubble and hibernating. The best temperature for them is 60 degrees but the hotter the environment the less time they will live. Some people do not show any signs of bites, especially people over 65.
Bed bugs have been around for thousands of years and Humans have been fighting them the entire time. They hitch rides on us and move arounds spreading rapidly now most people do not remember what they look like or have never had them. In the 50s bed bugs were non existent due to harsher chemicals being used for roaches and other insects. People covered furniture with plastic and vacuuming was much easier. People used to spray base boards with chemicals ahead of time to combat infestations of other insects.
