Flea and tick season can be a challenging time for pet owners and homeowners alike. These pests can cause discomfort for your pets and can even pose health risks to both pets and humans. Knowing how to identify, prevent, and treat flea and tick infestations can help you keep your home free of these troublesome insects.


Understanding Fleas and Ticks

  • Fleas are small, wingless insects that feed on the blood of mammals and birds. They can jump great distances and often live on pets or other animals, laying eggs in their fur.
  • Ticks are small arachnids that also feed on blood. They often attach themselves to hosts, such as pets or humans, and can transmit diseases like Lyme disease.



When Is Flea and Tick Season?

Flea and tick season varies depending on your location, but it typically occurs during the warmer months, from spring to fall. Ticks thrive in moist, wooded areas and tall grasses, while fleas can be found in warm, humid environments.


How to Keep Your Home Free of Fleas and Ticks

  1. Regular Pet Grooming:
  • Brush your pets regularly to remove any fleas or ticks.
  • Check your pets for fleas and ticks after they have been outdoors, especially if you live in an area with a high pest population.
  1. Preventive Treatments:
  • Use flea and tick prevention products on your pets, such as collars, spot-on treatments, or oral medications. Consult your vet for the best options for your pet's health and safety.
  1. Yard Maintenance:
  • Keep your yard tidy by mowing the lawn regularly and trimming bushes and shrubs to reduce tick habitats.
  • Remove leaf litter and debris where ticks may hide.
  1. Use Natural or Chemical Treatments:
  • Natural treatments such as diatomaceous earth can help kill fleas by dehydrating them.
  • Chemical treatments can be effective for both indoor and outdoor use, but follow the instructions carefully to ensure safety.
  1. Check for Pests Regularly:
  • Inspect your home and pets regularly for signs of fleas and ticks. Early detection can prevent a full-blown infestation.
  1. Professional Pest Control:
  • If you have a severe infestation, consider calling a professional pest control service. They can provide targeted treatments to eliminate the pests.
  1. Home Cleaning and Maintenance:
  • Vacuum your home regularly! Especially carpets, rugs, and furniture, as these areas can harbor flea eggs and larvae. Nothing gets deeper than the HYLA!
  • Semi-frequent steaming your carpets, rugs, and upholstery will also eliminate eggs and traces of pests.



Flea and tick season can be managed effectively with regular vigilance and preventive measures. By maintaining a clean home, regularly treating your pets, and taking steps to manage your yard, you can keep your home free of fleas and ticks and ensure the health and safety of your family and pets. Always consult your vet for the most appropriate treatments and strategies for your pets.



When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust and other particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. The HYLA EST is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, increasing your indoor air quality while reducing need for dirty filters, harsh chemicals, and more.
