    hi I was just wondering if I am out of the house before bed bug feeds what will it do ?
    will it wonder the place or just stay where it hides?

    I think mine write novels; while they wait for me (and due to them, I am turning into an insomniac), they write hundreds of pages--about their desire for me, of course. What idiotic romantics they are.

    I know this is an old thread - but an inspector mentioned to me that the adults can live up to a year between feedings if they have to.

    They live a year between feedings if fed and kept so they can't feed. They can just wait. In a natural setting, there is no waiting to eat; when the host (you) is around, feeding will happen. They don't say "I can go a year without feeding, so I'll just wait here while all my potential meals just walk around and sleep in the bed or on the couch."
