Don’t let the bed bugs bite? The male bedbug spends as little time as possible with his partner to maximize his time as he tries to mate as often as he can. He grabs the female, stabs into a specific place in her abdomen, inseminating her. Previously, this traumatic sexual activity would put pressure on the exoskeletons of the females, but with the evolution of the bedbugs, they are better able to minimize damage and protect themselves. In fulfilling his sexual desires, bedbugs sometimes try to mate with other males who do not possess the same adaptations as the females with the distress imposed on him being lethal.
