Life cycle Edit
The eggs are deposited singly, but close to the same female in cracks, crevices, and holes. The eggs are reddish orange and have a tail-like projection. After the eggs hatch, they become larvae The larva are bright orange to red with six legs. After the larva stage is done, they become nymphs. They have 2 nymphal stages, protonymph and deutonymph. The protonymph is larger than the larvae and does have 8 legs. The deutonymph is similar, except it has an extra pair of legs. After these two nymphal stages, it becomes an adult. The adult has all 8 legs and is an opaque orange color.
