protects against fleas, too.

Fleas

What's hiding in your home?

Unlike other flea treatments that only control adults, Sentinel® Spectrum® (milbemycin oxime/lufenuron/praziquantel) and Sentinel® Flavor Tabs® break the life cycle at the egg stage to prevent flea populations from infesting pets and their environments.*

Get smart about fleas
  • A female flea can lay 50 eggs every day — as many as 2,000 eggs in her 2- to 3-month lifetime.
  • Female fleas consume 15 times their weight in blood every day.
  • Eggs fall off your pet wherever it goes.
  • Eggs hatch into maggot-like larvae in 2 to 4 days
  • Larvae are repelled by light and burrow into carpet, fabric, cracks and crevices.

By the time you see one flea, you could already have spent months living with an infestation of eggs and maggot-like larvae hiding where you least expect — in your bedding, carpets, furniture, and even between floorboards.

Stop fleas before they become adults.
