I would like to know the effectiveness of Termidor SC treatment of fleas and ticks.

Since the Frontline packaging says that it contains 9.8% or so of fipronil in measured dosages per pound that are directly applied to a dog. Is the .06% mixed concentration strong enough to kill them on the ground or on gravel?


Termidor SC is labeled for ticks but is not labeled for fleas. Fleas tend to live in moist shady areas out in the yard where pets or other animals spend a lot of time resting. Termidor SC however is only labeled to be used in very limited areas on or immediately next to the house or structure making it mostly ineffective for flea treatments. Termidor SC will however work well for ticks since they tend to climb walls on houses and structures where the Termidor SC can be sprayed.
