Similarly, how long do flea beetles live?

These hatch in about one week, and the slender white larvae feed on plant roots for approximately 2-3 weeks. Pupae usually remain in the soil for 7-9 days until adults emerge and the cycle is completed. There are one to four generations per year, depending on species and climate.

Additionally, do flea beetles live in the soil? Flea beetles live through the winter as adults in leaf litter, hedgerows, windbreaks and wooded areas.
