There are three types of tick and flea collars to choose from: Gas Based, Absorption based and High-Frequency.

Once you put the collar on your pet's neck it starts releasing it's contents into the skin of the pet which eventually gets absorbed making it safe for them but harmful for the fleas and ticks. These insecticides kill the fleas and ticks if they land on host's body.
