We use Trifexis for our dog.  It is great.

I've never tried it, but am tempted to if I end up having a flea problem with the animals this year...look up flea trap. it has something to do with a tea light candle, soap, and a tray and it supposedly works! and at least helps you tell how bad the flea situation is..

Put it in a carrier oil and put a few drops on the neck and the base of the tail. It will repel the fleas.

Not really. I did see a recipe for using lemons as natural flea prevention. I forgot what it was exactly, but it worked! If I find the recipe for it around here I'll post it.
