  • Fly strips. They work really well. (And there will always be those little buggers that find the perfect hiding place and come out to haunt you after all of the others are dead and gone. It never fails.)

  • Fly paper...also, I've read that putting a little dish soap in a shallow dish of water can attract (and drown) them? Not sure if that works, but I'm about to try it. Our apartment complex is built in front of a bird sanctuary, so bugs of all kind seem to be our constant companion.

  • Do you mean RID? lol

    Anyways....I would try bug let them off in the rooms but you have to leave for a couple of hours. You can buy them at local gocery stores.
