How Long Can A Flea Live?

A flea can live a year and a half under ideal conditions. These includes 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 the adult. While the adult is the most visible stage of the flea development, it accounts for only 1% of a flea infestation.

Adult female fleas feed then lay their eggs on a host, upto 50 eggs a day. Their eggs make up 34% of the typical flea infestation. Flea eggs fall of the host into 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 form the pupal stage in 8 days.

 Building a flea trap

Building a flea monitoring trap is easy, place a bowl of water beneath a plugged in 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 if you have a flea infestation.
