New Flea and Tick Treatment

What is new in flea treatment?

Activyl for Flea and Tick control uses bioactivation

Bioactivation - The latest in the science of flea control, explained

Flea products that use bioactivation work in a different way to conventional products. Once in the flea, these products are converted by flea enzymes into a more highly active form.

When the flea takes up this type of product, enzymes in the flea’s body activate it. This process is known as biological activation or ‘bioactivation’. The highly active product soon leads to paralysis and death of the flea. But because the product only becomes highly active inside fleas – not in dogs or cats – your pet’s exposure to the highly active product is lessened.
