The Lifecycle of the Flea

There are four stages in the life cycle of a flea: egg, larva, pupa, and adult.

Depending on the environmental temperature and humidity levels, the total life cycle will take anywhere from a couple weeks to many months.

Optimal conditions for fleas are between 70-85°F and 70 percent humidity.
