The eggs hatch and produce small, slow-moving larvae. The larvae have six legs

After one day, the larva turns into a nymph stage, and the nymphs are active and feed on the blood of their families, and the nymph remains attached to the host's body, feeding on its blood during the night and day

The female feeds for 24 hours before leaving the host's body to search for its hiding places, in preparation for the egg-laying process. The life cycle of the mite or outbreak is short, as the life cycle takes from 8 to 11 days.
