Definitely treat the yard. But also vacuum right before you treat the house. And not just the rugs. Vacuum furniture, curtains, etc too. Make sure that you get under your couches, chairs, beds, etc especially, because that's where they like to lay their eggs. And at this point, the eggs are going to be your biggest problem if they're in the house. Because the eggs protect from the stuff you're using to get rid of the fleas. And the normal hatching cycle of a flea egg is longer than the time that the stuff to get rid of them is effective for. So by the time that the eggs have hatched, the stuff to kill them has stopped working. So the vicious cycle starts again. Vacuuming actually stimulates the eggs to hatch sooner. So they're hatching while it's still effective. I battled fleas like crazy in my old house. After fighting them for what seemed like forever, I did research and found this info. The fleas never came back.

Quoting LCG83:

I feel ya. I have sooooo many. Partly thanks to freaking fleas that I can't get rid of and from being outside all the dang time. I'm going out of my ever loving mind. My legs are so tore up they look absolutely disgusting and humiliating. We've tried pills, sprays, shampoos, dips, spraying the house, etc. it's helped but not enough. Freaking bugs. I told dh we need to treat the yard of our new house before we move in. At least our immediate yard. Lol
