HOW ADAMS™ PLUS FLEA & TICK SPRAY WORKS: Adams™ Plus Flea & Tick Spray kills adult fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae, ticks, and repels mosquitoes. Flea eggs and larvae sprayed with Adams™ Plus Flea & Tick Spray will not grow into adults.

Adams™ Plus Flea & Tick Spray combines the adult flea killing power of etofenprox with the long-lasting flea egg-killing power of S-Methoprene 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. The elimination of both adult fleas and flea eggs is important because adult fleas live on your pet, causing discomfort and skin irritation, while the vast number of eggs that they lay fall off and develop in your house. If fleas are already developing in your house, then use an Adams™ Plus premise product. Effective flea control requires treatment of your pets, house, and yard.

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

IMPORTANT! READ ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE EACH USE. USE ONLY ON DOGS AND PUPPIES 10 WEEKS OF AGE OR OLDER AND CATS AND KITTENS 12 WEEKS OF AGE OR OLDER!

USE RESTRICTIONS: For indoor use only. Do not apply this product to puppies less than 10 weeks of age and to kittens less than 12 weeks of age. For Dogs and Puppies: The maximum application rate for this product is twice per month, and the second application must be made more than 8 days after the initial application. For Cats and Kittens: The maximum application rate for this product is once per month.

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 pet 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 pet’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 pets, spray until damp, not saturated. Do not allow pets to become chilled.

4. Repeat every month for continuous home flea and tick infestation prevention.

Recommended dosage: Note that the recommended dose is about 4 squeezes of the trigger sprayer per pound of body weight. Short-haired pets will need less; more spray may be needed for long-haired pets. 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.

Adams™ Plus Flea & Tick Spray is most effective when used as part of a total flea and tick management program. Use other Adams™ Plus products registered for residential premise control (carpets, upholstery and pet bedding) of these pests in conjunction with this treatment. Monthly premise treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas and ticks.

The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of pets with Adams™ Plus Flea & Tick Spray kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.
