How long does a kudzu bug live? One report showed that female adult kudzu bugs live between 44 and 81 days depending on the temperature. In an ongoing development project I am running, I have found a similar range for average adult longevity. However, there are a few (very very few) bugs who greatly exceed this lifespan. For example, the bug pictured above turned one year old today.
