Do I need to use flea prevention now that we are home in the high desert

Should I actively treat our dog, who seems to have acquired fleas on a recent oceanside vacation, now that we are home in our dry climate?
---Our Queensland heeler/Jack Russell terrier, Tully, traveled with us recently to the Pacific coast for a week, and to one of the Great Lake states for another week. Since we've been back home in our high desert climate, I've noticed him scratching at fleas. Fleas are not a problem here due to dryness and altitude.
Should I actively treat him with natural remedies to get rid of the fleas, or will the problem resolve itself?
Thanks for all your help, metafilter members!
