A gravid female can deposit up to 5 eggs a day and upwards of 500 in her lifetime. The eggs gestate for a week to 10 days and then hatch. Thereafter they go through 5 instars for about 45-60 days until they reach adulthood. The speed at which they mature and populations grow is highly dependent on blood source (each growth stage requires a meal to precede it) and temperatures.
