How It Works:
Frontline Plus works by using the active ingredient fipronil (broad-spectrum insecticide) to slowly poison and disrupt the central nervous system of the ticks and fleas. Then the second active ingredient S-Methoprene (insect growth regulator) is used to kill the larvae and flea eggs. The active ingredients are waterproof and stored in the sebaceous glands. The ingredients are wicked out of the hair follicles and continuously re-applied each month for a long-lasting effect.
