Program is the cornerstone of the successful flea control program. It prevents development of breeding flea populations therefore preventing recognizable infestations. It also effectively targets 85% of existing infestations comprised of eggs and larvae.
The active ingredient that controls fleas in Program is lufenuron, a benzoylphenyl urea (BPU) derivative. BPU’s have been tested since the 1970s for their activity on insects. All BPU’s, including lufenuron, are classified as Insect Development Inhibitors (IDI’s).
