Cover the drains. After a week or so the drains become dry and raoches will start to crawl in.
Properly seal doors and window sills.
Check that weather stripping is in good condition around the property because bugs will find its way to your vacant property through dry / missing weather stripping.
Place painter's tape around the dryer vent to keep roaches and other pests out.

"Thanks very much. I'll also say that it has been a pleasure doing business with you and Earl.
