Frontline Combo - topical flea and tick treatment by Merial – contains two active ingredients fipronil and (s)-methoprene. Fipronil attacks insects’ nervous system and kills them. It destroys 98-100% fleas within 24 hours of application. It eliminates various types of ticks (Dermacentor reticulatus, Dermacentor variabilis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes scapularis, Ixodes ricinus, Haemaphysalis longicornis, Haemaphysalis flava, Haemaphysalis campanulata) and lice within 48 hours post-exposure.
The other ingredient - (S)-Methoprene is an insect growth regulator that restricts the growth of immature stages of insects. It controls flea larvae and pupae development that prevents contamination of the environment of treated animals with immature stages of fleas. It controls disease caused by lice and sarcoptic mange.
