It really is that simple.|
Beaphar FIPROtec® COMBO helps protect your pet and your home. It contains two active ingredients; fipronil and S-methoprene.
The product is 'non-systemic'. This means the active ingredients are NOT absorbed into your pet's bloodstream. Instead, parasites are killed via contact on the skin.
Fipronil is an adulticide, meaning it kills the adult parasite. When an adult flea comes into contact with the fipronil, it affects the parasite's nervous system, causing hyperexcitation and death.
This is why you sometimes appear to see 'more fleas' after applying a flea treatment containing fipronil. The fleas become more active before they die.
S-methoprene works differently. It is classed as an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). IGRs mimic a parasite's own growth hormones, tricking their body into thinking they can't progress to the next stage of the life cycle.
The adult female flea absorbs S-methoprene through cuticles on her legs. This affects her reproductive system, meaning any eggs she lays will be unable to hatch or die soon afterwards. Any fully developed eggs that haven't been affected by the S-methoprene become coated in it as they fall through your pet's fur. They will die soon after hatching.
As your treated pet moves around your home, they shed hair and skin cells coated in S-methoprene. Flea larvae that hatch from eggs already in the environment will feed on these S-methoprene coated skin cells. They will die soon after ingesting it or, once they've spun into their impenetrable pupal cocoon, will unable to develop any further.
95% of a flea’s life cycle takes place in the home. If you want to stay flea-flea, you need make sure you’re treating your home as well as your pet.
