Efficacy and longevity of nitenpyram against adult cat fleas (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae)



Efficacy and longevity of nitenpyram against adult cat fleas (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae)



Journal of Medical Entomology 40(5): 678-681



Nitenpyram (Capstar) is a fast acting, orally administered flea treatment that is absorbed into the blood of the host animal and is readily available for uptake by feeding fleas. We examined the efficacy of a single dose of nitenpyram against adult cat fleas, Ctenocephalides felis (Bouche), over several days. We recorded adult flea mortality and flea egg production on treated and untreated cats.
