What is an insect growth regulator?
An IGR, such as pyriproxyfen, inhibits the development of flea eggs. It also offers additional larvicidal properties when compared with imidacloprid alone.
Why is it important to use a product like Advantage® II for dogs with an IGR?
With an IGR as part of your flea control, the flea life cycle is disrupted at multiple stages through different active ingredients and modes of action. This is often referred to as integrated flea control (IFC). The addition of an IGR to Advantage® II provides ovicidal, as well as additional larvicidal properties to target flea infestations and kill flea life stages.
