I went to Ace Hardware and got this big jug of bug spray that had a little hose and hand sprayer attached (I'm sure those guys could tell you the name of it...or any hardware/housecare store). I was told to spray the inside edges of the house first (the baseboards along the walls that are 'outside' walls), and around the doors and windows inside. Then wait 24 hours (gives any bugs inside time to get out I guess?) and spray along the outside. Same deal, go all the way around the house at ground level, and around any windows and doors. I didn't have ANYTHING in the house for at least 3 months. They did tell me that I'd have to do it every 3-4 months (obviously not in the middle of winter, but you get the idea). It worked really well.
