I am SO sick of this!!!

We moved into this place about a year ago and within a week or two, we started seeing roaches!! Well, now we're infested!! I keep the place clean and don't leave food out. I only feed my cat twice a day and only put enough food out for her to eat right then. Same with her water. We have sprayed, used that powder stuff and set off those foggers but nothing seems to kill them! I've had to take all of my pictures off the wall because they hide behind them. What kills these fuckers?!?! We can't move right now, as much as I would LOVE to!! Every time I cook, I have to fight them to keep them out of the food! It's ridiculous!!! Please, if anyone has any advice or knows of a product that actually works, let me know!! I know calling an exterminator is useless. My MIL has roaches too and she's been fighting them for years. She used to have an exterminator come out once a month and it never got rid of them. If anything, it made them worse. It's so fucking embarrassing!!!

What do the roaches look like? If they are German roaches it can take up to 6 months to get rid of them. Household roaches are attracted to glue (boxes, plastic, shelf liners, etc.)

 Like this:

So yeah, I guess that's what we have. Damn, 6 months? But how? What do we use to kill them off?

 I will look for that at Tractor Supply!! Can you use it in the house? And yes, they do breed worse than rabbits!!! We've tried everything and can't seem to get rid of them!! They are so nasty! I bet I spray my kitchen and bathroom counters down with bleach spray at least 6 times a day.
