How do you get rid of the 1 to 2 inch water bugs found in Dallas Texas?

Partner and I recently purchased a fixer upper in Dallas. However, it had a few mice.. Fixed that traps and released far away in a field. What seems to be the challenge in getting rid of are these large water bugs that sometimes fly. Any suggestions???

    Those things look so creepy. I live on the east coast, near the beach and I’ve never figured out how to get rid of them. They’re attracted to the humidity. They try to beat me to my door when I come home at night. I think it’s the females that fly. They’re also very smart. If I find one on my ceiling and they see me coming, they’ll go over the ceiling fan so I can’t get them. I also caught one one night eating my bread from a bag it had torn open. Pray for a drought!
