How Long Can A Flea Live?

A flea can live a year and a half under ideal conditions. These include a good host for feed, temperature, and humidity. Generally, an adult flea will live 2 to 4 months. Without a host for food, a flea might die in just a few days.

Flea Cycle

In any flea infestation, there are four stages of the flea live cycle present: The egg, larva, cocoon, and adult. While the adult is the most visible stage of flea development, it accounts for only 1% of a flea infestation.

Adult female fleas feed then lay their eggs on a host, up to 50 eggs a day. Their eggs make up 34% of the typical flea infestation. Flea eggs fall off the host into the carpet where they hatch into worm-like larvae after 10 days. Larvae make up the majority of a flea population, as much as 57%. After feeding for 5 – 11 days, they begin to produce a silk-like cocoon and enter the pupil stage. New flea adults usually emerge from the pupal stage in 8 days.

 Building a flea control trap

Building a flea monitoring trap is easy, place a bowl of water beneath a plugin night light. Fleas are attracted to the light and will jump into the bowl of water. Once in the bowl, they will be unable to get out. By using this method you will be able to test and monitor your rooms for future flea infestations.
