BioSpot Spot On Flea Treatment
Bio Spot has a full line of flea & tick control products for your pet, home and yard. You can find Bio Spot making a trip to your vet. Bio Spot offers complete line of products that are as effective as those sold by veterinarians. Bio Spot Spot On Flea & Tick Control for Dogs differs from other flea and tick control products by containing both an insecticide that kills and repels adult fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes up to 30 days, and a long lasting insect growth regulator (IGR) that prevents flea eggs from developing into biting adults.
Bio Spot works against adult fleas and flea eggs, as well as ticks and mosquitoes, in an easy to apply, spot-on dispenser. Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) mimic insect hormones involved in egg hatching and insect maturation. An insect egg exposed to the appropriate IGR fails to hatch and dies before becoming an adult. An IGR does not kill adult fleas.
By killing flea eggs and adults, Bio Spot Spot On Flea & Tick Control for Dogs interrupts the flea life cycle. Since the eggs are killed, fleas will not develop into biting adults and the life cycle is broken.
