Unfortunately not for fleas at least.

Our houses are too warm and cosy with central heating etc that they don't have to have a break - they just keep going all year.

As ticks don't tend to live in houses I think they do tend to die off during the cold months though.

They do not go dormant. Changes in temperature hot to cold, or cold to hot increase breeding activity.
