Don't wait until it's too late! Preventing fleas and ticks is cheaper than controlling them once there is a flea infestation. Flea and tick prevention products stop 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 doesn't only stop the problem, but it also helps to prevent an infestation from occurring.
Flea and tick preventatives can help your pet avoid:
- Flea allergies
- Hot spots
- Biting adult fleas
- Skin infections
- Lyme disease
- Rocky Mountain spotted fever
- Fleas and ticks in your home
Flea and tick prevention keeps your pet healthy. Your pet won't pick up tapeworms or have flea bites that cause itching misery and flea allergy dermatitis. In addition, you can help prevent diseases that fleas and ticks carry such as Lyme Disease, ehrlichia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and tick paralysis.
