What flea control products do you use on your cats? Also is early reapplication dangerous?
I live in florida and fleas are very easy to get and difficult to control here. Revolution has stopped working at all, so we recently switched. However, frontline stops working after 15-20 days instead of lasting the full month. No one online seems to have this problem, and everything is all "Don't reapply until 30 days! You don't need to.". Is it really unsafe to reapply early? Even with frequent vacuuming, the 5-10 day gap seriously sets back all my hard work and lets the fleas repopulate, especially if I don't notice quickly. Do I just comb/vacuum/work extra hard while I wait for the 30 days to be up, or reapply a little early?
Spiders--These things are scary smart.

Distance from the porch light to the bug zapper: 54 feet.
Height of the shepherd's hook the zapper is on: Roughly 5.5 feet.
The realization that bugs with venom can think and adapt so quickly: Priceless.
