Consecutive monthly applications of Vetri-Science Flea + Tick Defense will kill adult fleas before they lay eggs, assist with the elimination of the indoor flea life cycle, and control and prevent re-infestation. In some geographical regions in the United States, it is recommended that you use the product year-round.
