We have a cat, treated with Advantage. We are getting bitten by mystery bugs. Flea traps and bedbug traps have turned up nothing.

Resistance to Advantage and Frontline.
My cats just had fleas and we're in the bay area. I was told by my vet Advantage and Frontline are not working. My cats were treated with both for three months each and still had fleas so I kind of already guessed that. I would go to your vet and ask for an alternative medication, mine suggested Cheristin and we haven't seen a flea for months.

Certainly looks like a flea

One of the specialists should be able to tell you more.
