The larva starts to spin a cocoon a week later. This stage of the flea's life is called the pupa. In a week's time, the pupa will develop into an adult. It will emerge from the cocoon when it senses vibrations or warmth. The entire life cycle takes about 2 to three weeks, but the pupa can remain dormant for up to a year in its cocoon.
