While living in Houston, Texas, we had a tremendous infestation of fleas. And I do mean Texas Size fleas. We had our pets dipped once a month, combed them with flea combs-on a white towel or cloth-fleas are attracked to white, and vacuumed with a flea collar cut up and inserted into the bag of the vacuum cleaner. This kills all eggs with the adults, after they have been vacuumed up. Our Veterinarian told us about this tip. It worked wonders. Once I had the pets dipped and started the combing and vacuuming, I did not have to have them dipped as often, later on.
The garage and yards must be treated, also, to keep it under control. Good Luck!
