People try Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. They put it between their mattress & box springs, under their beds and it works only when they walk through it, through fatal abrasion of the exoskeletons.
If you’re in an apartment or other multi-family housing, this needs to be brought to the attention of the landlord, as they could be coming from some other tenants’ place.
Home remedies don't work and they multiply quickly. Call an exterminator asap. Remember every time you leave the house you are spreading them.
