Fleas on pets are problematic to eliminate. The best remedy is to keep environment around the pets sanitized. In spite of precautions, fleas find their way anyhow and attack pets. Fortunately, a number of pesticides are now available to combat the flea threat. Activyl for Cats is one such product that needs to be applied only once a month to provide complete protection against adult fleas and flea eggs and larvae. It is important to disrupt the flea life cycle by wiping out its eggs and larvae. Activyl does just that - it prevents flea reinfestation by eliminating eggs and larvae besides killing adult fleas.
Activyl - How it works?
Activyl contains a lethal active ingredient, Indoxacarb, which works by using a method called bioactivation in which Indoxacarb is activated using the flea’s own enzymes. When a flea attacks your pet, it absorbs the active ingredient, which causes the enzymes within the flea’s gut to change. The flea becomes too weak to feed due to paralyzing effect of Activyl and dies.
Activyl for cats contains the active ingredient Indoxacarb (19.53%) besides residual ingredients (80.47%) in applicator sachets available in two dosages – 0.51 ml (0.02 fl oz) for cats and kittens weighing 2-9 lbs and 1.03 ml (0.03 fl oz) applicators for cats over 9 lbs.
The best treatment I have used so far on my pets. This stuff works excellent, as there are no more fleas on my pet and he is happy and healthy.
The cat does seem to startle a bit when applied but she settles down quickly.
The results were positive. It is now part of my flea control program to safeguard my pet from fleas.
