    Can a nymph bed bug survive without food as long as a adult can or will they die in a certain amount of time? I know without feeding they can't go on to the next stage and molt.

    About 60 days without a meal, and they'll die.

    It's important to take into consideration the ambient temperature because cool conditions allow them to live longer than hot temperatures.
