  • Advantage worked for us, too.

    Fleas hatch for a while after the place is bombed or sprayed, I think for two weeks. So that may be what you are experiencing.

    We also had the place sprayed by an exterminator, they spray along the floorboards.

  • use advantage
    dont let your kids touch your pets after this is put on, because if they ingest it it can be harmful
    your pets will rub on things walk around/etc and wherever they go the fleas will die
    this is a promise, I worked at a vet office and i reccomended this to many people and they said it wokred

  • don't use advantage if you just used frontline, you can poison your pets

    make sure you read all directions

    you can go on ebay and buy frontline plus kits for cats for twenty dollars

  • I'm a vet tech and this is the general rule for frontline: you should wait 48 hours before a bath and 48 hours after a bath to apply frontline. Did you do that? Also, at the same time you treat your cat and your house it is recommended that you treat your yard. If they are in your yard and the yard is untreated, they will come back in. It isn't easy to get rid of fleas if you got an infestation and getting rid of the cat is not a 100% cure for fleas.
