Approximately 95% of fleas in a home are in immature stages, allowing them to remain dormant for a long time. That’s why Advantage II kills fleas at all life stages with a one-two punch: Imidacloprid attacks the nervous systems of existing fleas, killing 98-100% of them within two hours. Pyriproxyfen then prevents eggs from hatching, ending the flea lifecycle.

Please come by our office or give us a call for further information. Over the counter monthly topical available for cats and dogs.
