To get rid of household insects you first need to secure each crack and hole in the wall, keep things neat and tidy in general as well as secure food in air tight containers. Visit your local home improvement store for pest control products like sticky paper and ultraviolet light traps.

The best way to rid your home of a wide spread breed of insects is with a fog. A separate one will be needed for roaches.

If you are looking to get rid of the insects within your home you will need to keep your home spotless especially making sure there are no crumbs on the floor and food placed away. You may need to use a bug bomb at least once.

Removal depends on the type of bugs. Insect sprays are good for small amounts flying in from outside in summer but you need special insect specific powders or other chemicals for ants, cockroaches, lice etc. If you have an infestation (a lot of one species living and breeding in your house) then you should probably bring pest controllers in.

Clean house! That's the first step. Use cleaner with bleach to wash off things and to mop with. Depending on the type of bugs you have, set insect traps discreetly around, keeping out of contact with children and pets. Use a homemade insecticide or buy one safe for inside. Clean up around outside of your house, too.
