See A Video Of A Flea...
Under The Microscope

The major reason  topical flea/tick preventative seems to fail is due to the owners bathing the pet just prior to applying the product. Many products work from within the skin's oil layer; if you wash the oils off, then apply the medication, it will not work!  Most topical products are not repellants, they kill fleas and ticks on contact with skin oils that contain the medication.
