Only if it has a flea poison in it too.
Tea tree oil can have some effect on bacteria but it isn't as good on fleas as pyrethrin type poisons may be.
Best choice with a flea issue to not only kill fleas but end reinfection is using a product such as Frontline or Frontline Plus.
Hope this helps you!
