Spray A Pesticide

Use a pesticide spray and spray around the perimeter of your home in every single room, particularly near the baseboards. Spray in every room, including basements and crawl spaces where these pests may be during daylight hours. You may also have to spray inside cabinets and pantries, which means you'll need to remove food from these areas so as to not spray them directly with the pesticide. Place all food and food items into airtight containers. When spraying cabinets that contain dishes, you'll need to remove them to spray the cabinets. Allow the pesticide to dry thoroughly, then wipe down cabinets and the pantry to remove any signs of these pests, or to remove traces of grease or oil left behind by these pests or by food residue before you replace the food or dishes to their rightful places.
