Why Does My Pet Need Flea & Tick Prevention?
Preventing fleas and ticks is cheaper than controlling them once there is a flea infestation. Flea and tick prevention products that contain insect growth regulators (IGR) stops eggs and larvae from developing into adult fleas.
At least 95% of the flea population exists as eggs, larvae, and pupae that hide in carpets and yards while adult fleas make up only 1-5% of the flea population. Using flea control products with insect growth regulators (IGRs) doesn't only stop the problem, but it also helps to prevent an infestation from occurring.
