The frequency of treatment depends on the degree of infestation. In the case of a severe flea infestation, it may be necessary to treat the animals every day or every other day, until the flea infestation is controlled. Treatment may be resumed if fleas reappear. 

CAPSTAR does not have persistent activity. To prevent re-infestation, a suitable treatment to control immature stages of the flea life cycle is recommended.
