Behavior & Habitat

Behavior & Habitats

The female psocid attaches up to one hundred sticky white eggs to food. The eggs hatch into nymphs and will go through several molts before becoming an adult. In optimum development conditions, the life cycle can be completed in as little as eight weeks. The adults survive for around six months. Psocids need to live in moist areas since they feed primarily on microscopic molds. Psocids live outdoors and have wings for the most part. They can be found on tree bark, tree and shrub foliage, and under stones. This type is known as bark lice. Psocids can be found indoors, and this type is extremely tiny and difficult to see. They are often referred to as book lice since they are common around old books in damp locations (such as the basement), but can also be found in damp, moldy foods as a stored product pest. This type is also wingless.
