Imidacloprid: Imidacloprid is an ectoparasiticide, an antiparasitic agent that targets parasites living primarily on the surface of a host. Chemically classified as a chloronicotinyl nitroguanidine, imidacloprid inhibits neurotransmitter transmission in insects, resulting in paralysis and death.
Benefits: Imidacloprid exhibits both adulticide and larvicidal flea efficacy; it not only kills adult fleas and larvae on your pet, but it also kills larval stages in your pet's immediate surroundings.
Main Purpose: To kill fleas at all stages of their life cycles and stop them from being able to move or feed.
Permethrin: Permethrin is the additional ingredient in Advantix. It belongs to the Type I class of pyrethroid acaricides and insecticides, and it also acts as a repellent. Pyrethroids affect muscle and nerve cells' sodium ion channels by increasing their mean open time, which leads to hyperexcitability and death of the parasite.
Benefits: Thanks to its repelling activity, permethrin reduces parasite bites and thus the risk of diseases and stress for your dog.
Main Purpose: To repel ticks, sand flies, and mosquitoes; to kill ticks and fleas.
Two Proven Ingredients with Enhanced Activity: Imidacloprid and permethrin work together to overwhelm the nervous system of the parasite, providing neurotoxic activity beyond that of each compound alone. This leads to more profound and quicker insect paralysis and death.
Specifically, imidacloprid increases the efficacy of permethrin by activating insect nerve cells and increasing the frequency of neurotransmissions. As a result, more sodium channels are opened and the pyrethroid can interact much better with its target site.
Pyriproxyfen: Pyriproxyfen is a pyridine-based pesticide. A juvenile hormone analog, it interferes with the hormone signaling of growing insects, so that insects in immature stages are unable to mature. Additionally, a female insect that touches the toxin will produce eggs that will not hatch.
Benefits: Pyriproxyfen provides an added layer of protection for pets and their surroundings. It interrupts the flea life cycle at multiple stages, halting the growth and development of insect eggs and larvae and preventing re-infestation.
Main Purpose: To prevent flea eggs from hatching and larvae from growing.
