7. This is what I did a few years back
when I had a similar issue (and a dog with an immunity to both the Advantix and Frontline products).

Within a single 24 hour period:
(1) Spray your yard with a product that kills fleas
(2) Flea bomb your home to kill fleas
(3) Vacume home, upholstery, and curtains to remove dead fleas and flea eggs
(4) Give dogs Capstar, wait until the fleas die then bathe dogs

After completing that routine give the dogs a flea treatment. Revolution worked for us when nothing else did.

Two weeks later repeat the same routine. Repeat again if you cotinue to see fleas.

If you have a monitored alarm system call ahead and have the monitoring disabled while you flea bomb the house. You will activate the monitored fire alarm.

Some flea treatments which are safe for dogs are not safe for cats.
