Worms and Ear Mites

How do you know if your cat has worms? What are the major signs?
And my kitten has ear mites. I took him to the vet for that and he cleaned it out and gave me ear drops. Now I give him the drops and clean the ears every day. I'm supposed to do that for two weeks, then stop for a week and then do it for one more week. Once that's all done, how can I make sure the mites are all dead?

Mites have a 28 day life cycle. Since you are medicating for 28 days, this should kill all the adults and their offspring. As long as you follow the directions precisely, the mites shouldn't come back.
