Is Frontline Plus effective at killing fleas and ticks?
Frontline Plus uses two ingredients to quickly and efficiently get rid of fleas and ticks. Fipronil is an insecticide which disrupts the central nervous system of fleas and ticks while S-Methoprene kills flea eggs and larvea to prevent future infestations. The ingredients are stored in the oil glands of your pet's skin and the medicine self-activates continuously for 30 days through the hair follicles killing all fleas and ticks.
