    I was thinking all day yesterday and today, what would happen if I suddenly left my very small bb infested home for a week? (of course showering and drying our clothes in the dryer for 50 minutes to kill bbs on us.)

    I'm planning to leave for an important trip for a week and I stated in my last topic that I had a small bed bug problem (1-2 bbs every 4-5 days). I was wondering what would happen if I left and the bbs have no food source?

    Would existing eggs hatch and just be there for a week until I got back and feast on me? What should I do when I leave for this trip?

    They would wait until you returned, and then chow down. Even newly-hatched bed bugs can survive for a week or two without feeding.
