Sue writes,

Can you get or sell a higher percentage of methoprene (closer to the 8.8%) as in Frontline Plus?

The methoprene is only 1.2% in your product, and the methoprene in Frontline Plus is a whopping 8.8%.


The formulations between structural/lawn insecticides vs. topical animal flea products are completely different. While the concentration in some flea products is quite high, the volume is quite low. There is no reason to use a higher concentration of IGR for insect control in the home. Manufacturers and universities have spent millions of dollars researching what concentration of methoprene works best in structures and yards to interrupt breeding cycles in certain insects. The concentration you see today is a direct result of that research. So the answer to your question is no, we cannot get a higher concentration than you have already found on our site. The only company that can get a higher concentration is the manufacturers that make the products.
