Unfortunately yes, even if there was no written lease, if you allowed them to live there and move in their personal belongings, then they legally become your tenants and your are their landlord under an oral month to month lease.
You would have to give them a written one month notice to move specifying the date on which their tenancy will end. Then if they don't move out within that period you can file a formal eviction action in court to get a judgment and a writ of possession that the sheriff will execute to physically remove them from the property.
