How long can bed bugs survive in a vacant home?
Bed bugs can survive up to twelve months without food in the right conditions and up to eighteen months without any oxygen at all. However, if their host has left the home, they will find new prey to survive, even if it is not a human. The new source of food can come from the blood of other pests and animals such as rats, mice, dogs, and birds etc. Bed bugs don’t require frequent feedings and will feed off of a stray rat or a mouse once in a while to survive for months and years in an empty home until a new human host is present.
Bed bugs are very difficult to get rid of. They reproduce very fast, quickly becoming a severe infestation and taking over your home if not properly treated.
It is highly recommended to hire a professional bed bug exterminator to safely kill and remove them from your home.
