How Long Can Fleas Live without a Host?

Answer

Fleas generally don't survive past 100 days, even if they live on a host. However, without a host, they have no food source, and may die between 2 and 14 days. The same can't be said for flea eggs and larvae, which do not require a host and can reach high populations.

While fleas have many cycles of life that they go through, an adult flea (which is the stage where they feed on blood) must hurry and find a host. It can only survive for a week without a host, when they first come out. You can find more information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flea#Life_cycle_and_habitat
