*IGR - Insect Growth Regulator - Chemicals that disrupt and impede the life cycle of insects in the egg and larvae stage of development. The idea with an IGR is that if an insect cannot reach adulthood, it cannot reproduce. In short, IGR is a form of "birth control" for pests which helps keep the populations of unwanted pests under control by preventing current and future infestations.
I don't know what it is about Frontline but it never seems to work! I literally used all 3 tubes in one month because the fleas would disappear for a few days and then come back with a vengeance! I am going to try Advantage next!
This is an excellant product!You have to follow the instructions and keep your pet out of water for at least 24 hours. My lab swims everyday and gets a bath once a week and this product holds up well. We have no fleas as long as she has this on her. We are very happy with this product and so is my lab.
This year for some reason the flea infestations have been really bad. I have found this product works if you don't already have huge problem. It really only worked for me in conjunction with yard and home treatments, and it didn't work for very long. It's not a bad product, but for my situation in the climate where we live it just isn't enough. Do your research before buying.
