The Seresto Collar effectively kills fleas and ticks for up to 8 months. It starts to kill fleas within 48 hours of being put on your pet and continues to protect your pet from pests for up to 8 months. Unlike most other topical treatments, there is no need to reapply the Collar every month or every other month so you can be sure that your pet is continuously protected from fleas and ticks all year around without any extra effort.
Understanding How Seresto Flea Collars Work
The key to understanding how Seresto flea collars work lies in the active ingredients – imidacloprid and flumethrin. These two powerful ingredients work together to provide 8-month long flea and tick protection for cats and dogs.
Once the collar is around your pet’s neck, the imidacloprid absorbs through its fur into your pet’s skin. This fast-acting ingredient quickly starts killing any existing adult fleas or ticks within 24 hours. The flumethrin then slowly releases over time, repelling future pests before they latch onto your pet.
Both of these ingredients are designed to be safe for pets and continue providing lasting protection against fleas and ticks for up to eight months, even if your pet decides to take a dip in the lake or go for a swim in the ocean! Plus, you won’t need to constantly worry about reapplying annoying topical treatments or monthly sprays. With a Seresto seresto large dog Flea Collar, all you have to do is slip it on your pet once every seven months and enjoy their newfound freedom from pesky parasites!
The Science Behind Seresto Flea Collars
The Seresto flea collars use a revolutionary technology to fight off fleas and ticks. The core of the collar is constructed from polypropylene, which is infused with an insecticide called imidacloprid and a pesticide called flumethrin. Together, these two compounds form an odorless layer that works to repel and kill fleas and ticks.
But how long does it take for the Seresto flea collars to work? Studies have shown that the active ingredients work within 24 hours of applying the collar. Within 72 hours of applying the collar, fleas that ambush or land on your pet won’t survive due to carrying toxic levels of insecticides.
Simply put, this means that your pet will be free from many parasites within three days after applying their Seresto flea collar!
How Long Does it Take for a Seresto Flea Collar to Start Working?
The Seresto flea collar begins killing and repelling fleas immediately, even upon contact with your pet’s fur. That said, it takes a few days for the insecticide to build up on the surface of the pet’s fur under the collar and begin blocking the action of bugs like fleas.
It usually take about 48 hours for the Seresto Flea Collar to reach maximum effectiveness at controlling fleas on your pet. After 72 hours you should start to notice a drop in visible signs of itching, scratching or other indications of discomfort due to fleas as well.
Also don’t forget that Seresto Collars are meant to repel against other parasites like ticks and larvae too, so it’s important that you let it get enough time after placing it on your pet before expecting full protection from those annoying buggers as well.
It takes approximately two days for most people to notice a decrease in fleas after applying a Seresto flea collar. Afterwards, consistent use is needed in order to ensure your pet remains pest free.
