How Long Do Dogs Fleas Live in the Home?

Answer

Fleas are small (1/16 to 1/8-inch (1.5 to 3.3 mm) long, agile, usually dark coloured, wingless insects with tube-like mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their hosts. Newly emerged adult fleas live only about one week if a blood meal is not obtained. However, completely developed adult fleas can live for several months without eating, so long as they do not emerge from their puparia.
