HOW BIO SPOT DEFENSE FLEA & TICK SPRAY FOR CATS & KITTENS WORKS:

Bio Spot Defense Flea & Tick Spray for Cats & Kittens combines the adult flea killing power of etofenprox with the long-lasting flea egg-killing power of PRECOR® Insect Growth Regulator. This highly effective combination of ingredients provides quick relief from biting fleas and continuous killing of flea eggs laid on the animal, breaking the flea life cycle.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE - It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING.

For Fleas and Ticks: A light, even coverage of the hair coat will provide effective flea control. Do not allow spray from application or damp cat/kitten to come into contact with painted or finished surfaces, including wood floors/furniture, leather/vinyl materials, or other surfaces of concern.

1. For best results, ruffle the coat while spraying against the natural lay of the hair. Cover cat’s/kitten’s eyes with hand. With a firm, fast stroke, spray head, ears, and chest. If you see a tick, spray it directly.

2. With cloth, rub on face around mouth, nose, and eyes. Then spray the neck, middle and hind quarters, finishing with legs and tail last. Avoid spraying rectum and genitals.

3. For all cats, spray until damp, not saturated. Do not allow cats/kittens to become chilled.

4. If your cat/kitten becomes reinfested with adult fleas or ticks from outside sources, Bio Spot Defense Flea & Tick Spray for Cats & Kittens may be reapplied every two weeks after the initial application. Repeat every month for continuous home flea infestation prevention.

Recommended dosage: Note that the recommended dose is about 4 squeezes of the trigger sprayer per pound of body weight. Short-haired cats/kittens will need less; more spray may be needed for long-haired cats/kittens. In all cases, apply spray until the coat is damp, not saturated.

For Mosquitoes: A light, even coverage of the hair coat (as applied for flea control), will also provide effective repellency of mosquitoes.

The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of cats/kittens with Bio Spot Defense Flea & Tick Spray for Cats & Kittens kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.
