squeaks under carpet

I had my subfloor rescrewed before installing new carpet. It has been 3.5 months and it seems to be getting squeaky again. The contractor said they screwed it down. Do screws loosen that fast? Why would my floor be squeaking again so soon?

Does the whole floor squeak or just a few areas?

Multiple places - but the number seems to be growing. When they first "screwed" down the squeaky spots, the # of spots decreased dramatically.... now it seems to be getting worse again.
