Powerhouse Furniture Polish, the off-brand Orange type that you can buy at the store, kills cockroaches if you drench them with it. A mist of it won't work, they have to be soaked. They go into seizures and die. It is not as toxic as other sprays, but I use what I have. Be sure to wipe up furniture polish off the floor, since it is slippery.

It is also sticky and attracts ants.Our exterminator strongly advised not to use this stuff in this manner because what it kills with one, it attracts with another type of insect.
There is another thing you can try for killing roaches and that's Clorox disinfectant spray found out by accident so you not only cleaning house you are spraying for bugs and smells good too.
