Efficacy of fenthion against the flea, Ctenocephalides felis, on the cat


, : Efficacy of fenthion against the flea, Ctenocephalides felis, on the cat. Journal of Small Animal Practice 34(9): 434-435

A controlled study was carried out in two replicated trials, each using three groups of domestic cats artificially infested with Ctenocephalides felis. In each trial three cats were treated with fenthion, three were treated with a dichlorvos/fenitrothion formulation, both at the recommended dose rate and the remainder acted as untreated controls. Good knockdown efficacy was evident 24 hours after both treatments. Efficacy values of 85 per cent or more were maintained for at least 15 days with fenthion and for less than eight days with dichlorvos/fenitrothion.

Jump performances of Ctenocephalides canis and Ctenocephalides felis felis have been measured and compared on unfed young imagos. The mean length of the C. felis felis jump was 19.9+/-9.1cm; minimum jump was 2cm, and the maximum was one 48cm. The...

Jump performances of C. canis and C. felis felis were measured and compared, using unfed young adult fleas. The mean length of the C. felis felis jump was 19.9+or-9.1 cm (range 2-48 cm). The C. canis jump was significantly longer (30.4+or-9.1 cm;...
