How it works?
Prac-tic consists of Pyriprole as an active ingredient. It is an insecticide and acaricide that acts by interacting with ligand-gated chloride channels, in particular those gated by the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), thereby blocking pre - and post-synaptic transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes. This results in uncontrolled activity of the central nervous system and death of fleas and ticks. The parasites get killed through contact rather than systematic exposure. It kills fleas within a day and ticks within 2 days of administration.
