I am working with a parcel shapefile of an entire state. I need to remove all of the building polygons falling inside the bigger parcel polygon. These are not donut holes but instead separate polygons.

I can't erase each polygon manually because I am working with the entire state dataset.


What geoprocessing tool should I use?
