Install cockroach gratings in all traps. Existing roaches can be finished off by effective pest control agent. To be used during the night before holidays.

Boric acid, it is very effective when used properly for killing
cockroaches and most other insects.

You can also get a house lizard, they are natural enemies and will eat
them
