These easy to follow tips were provided by "The Bug Master", a pest control company in Austin Texas where I live and provide real estate services.
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.
A vacant property, either because you moved out and have not sold/rented it yet or because you are out of town from a couple of weeks, seems to be a paradise for pests to come in, propagate and stay. Follow the tips provided by The Bug Master or contact your preferred pest control company to have then do a preventive treatment before its too late and more costly to treat an infestation.

Very Helpful - Relocation Buyer June 2016
Violet was very helpful and knowledgeable about each of the neighborhoods I looked into and was able to guide me relative to schools, shopping, commutes, and community. We looked at a lot of homes in a variety of areas in Austin. We made offers on a couple and almost closed on one until the seller backed out last minute. Violet guided me through that and worked with the listing agent to ensure I received my earnest and option money back from the seller.
Ultimately she showed me a house she knew I would like, even though I was not sure I wanted to see it. It turned out to be the house I bought! Ultimately she knew better than I did at that point exactly what I was looking for in a house.
I would highly recommend her services to those that are looking to sell and or buy a home."
