No fleas are not a problem here this time of year for us and I usually use advantage or purina one that lasts for three months. I know that they dont like tea tree oil check up on google here are a few for you below

Hey just a few other types of things to try...
We use lavender oil, vinegar, an apple cider vinegar in there water. I haven't read the link's that were shown, but these are just natural type things we use.
The apple cider we put a teaspoon in there water, the lavender oil an vinegar we mix an spray on there bedding an around the house, an were they lay outside. Also the vinegar help's with odours.
Not as good as chemicals but hey must be better than sprayin chemicals an stuff everywere. Help's eh... Cool

Thanks everyone...

The Herbster is free of fleas but the only things that the vets throw at you if they have them is frontline and I don't want to give Herbie any chemicals if I can help it ....and was just interested what other people did overseas....

You have all given me some really good tips to try...
