Ok, we got two cute little white kittens and found out a week later that they have fleas. We are using Frontline Plus, which we understand to be among the best around for getting rid of all stages of fleas on the cats so that is covered. But what we are worried about now is the home envirnment. We want the house free of them. What is the best that can be done and how long will the battle take? We understand it could be a long fight to get rid of them. Thanks.
did the cats have full access to the entire house, or were they kept predominantly in one or two rooms? Wash their bedding. Vacuum the areas they sleep and play in daily, and especially up under the couch cushions.
Flea eggs fall off the body to the floor. The pupae stage of fleas is impossible to kill off, and it takes about 3 weeks for the mature fleas to emerge, so in the next 2-3 weeks you are probably going to get another outbreak. Hopefully the mature fleas jump onto the kittens and not you. The good news is the way frontline works, the fleas are going to die not from biting, but from merely touching the hairs on your kittens. Even shed hairs that have absorbed frontline can be deadly to fleas. Hopefully you've broken the cycle early enough that you will won't have any problems.
