I was told it could be as long as year, but don't take that to the bank. I do know it's a long time.

The eggs are still hatching. Vacumn every day and they will soon be gone.

We bought a house that had sat empty for about 18 months. The previous owners had a dog. We moved in and the place was full of fleas so, at least 18 months!

How often do fleas mate?

I don't know if it helps, but an exterminator and a vet told me that their eggs hatch every two weeks.

So we had to treat our house every two weeks. So gross.

Good luck, hope this helps. (11/10/2008)
