|What generic frontline???? There is no such thing. Please do not use OTC flea medicines. Several of them (Zodiac and Hartz) have been linked to seizure and death in kitties. Only use Advantage or Frontline that you purchase through your vet.
Flea bombs do not work, so don't waste your money. They spray up, then they fall right back down. Instead opt for safer alternatives. In the past I have used and recommended at our hospital,Siphotrol Premise spray. It is safe for use around children and pets. They recommend keeping animals and children out of the room you are spraying until the product is dry (around 30-45 minutes). Then it is safe to occupy the room again.
You need to thoroughly vacuum the house. This includes inside closets, on furniture, under beds, etc. ANYWHERE the cats walk or lay. Throw away the bag (outside trash). Use the spray. In 2 weeks you need to repeat the entire process. (It takes about 2-3 weeks for the flea pupae to develop into adults and nothing on the market can kill flea pupae).
Killing fleas, unfortunately, is not a fast process.
