Zodiac Flea & Tick Spray kills and repels fleas and ticks on dogs and cats.
The effectiveness of Zodiac Flea & Tick Spray stems from the combined effectiveness of pyrethrins and PRECOR Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). Pyrethrins quickly eliminate adult fleas, while PRECOR effectively breaks the flea life cycle and protects your pets from infestation for up to 2 months. Safe to use on dogs and cats over 12 weeks of age.

Zodiac Flea and Tick Spray by gringo45 from Tucson, AZ10/29/2013
I have used the Zodiac brand for several years and am more than happy with how well it works to kill and prevent fleas and ticks. I have dropped ticks into some of the spray in a bowl and swear they died almost immediately.
