florescent lights

Why would florescent lights flicker on and off over a period of time.

Bulbs could be loose or going bad. Bad ballast, loose wires in the fixture or in the circuit. This website has nearly everything you need to know about fluorescent fixtures:

If the bulbs have been there a few years, it's usually best to start by replacing the bulbs. But, as Ben says, there are a lot of possible explanations.
