Christina - Use Boric Acid from the eye care area in your grocery store. 
That little bottle with an equal amount of powdered sugar is good for your 
whole house in about two treatments.  You can just toss it behind the stove 
or use small bottle caps if you don't want it on the floor.  Put it in 
corners in the back of your drawers.  Anywhere and everywhere you see them. 
Bathroom, bedroom, etc.
