Hmm.. I heard turmeric powder works as well but  you can try clenaing the bench tops and cupboards down really well and then wipe down  with a clean damp cloth that has a few drops of essential peppermint oil on it. Or you can use ant traps or Raid, or Pour cinnamon across their trail. They can't cross it.
Hope that helps
I really don't know but my aunt use to get them in her kitchen a lot before but she used those things and she hardly see them now.

Hi pisces25 .. I suggest u sprinkle kapoor (make a trail on the edges of the kitchen bench and cupboards) it worked for me.
