This flea control product eliminates fleas at all of their life stages. The fast-acting formula imidacloprid will kill fleas within 12 hours and re-infesting fleas within 2 hours.
Advantage II eliminates fleas and lice by killing their eggs and larvae completely with an integrated flea control (IFC) solution.

Specifically targeting insects, pyriproxyfen uses hormone signaling to stop insects from developing during their maturity cycle.
