Roaches that are not affected by this chemical may still die after being sprayed, so more care should be taken when using such products.

It is typically best to apply the product in the early morning or evening when pests are not as active. If a product is applied during the daytime, it may dissipate before it has a chance to do its job. For more specific information on how long a specific product will last, it is important to read the label.
